The Antec in question:

And the Corsair:

From what I can gather, both of these manufacturers have a good rep.
And, as they are the same price, I don't care either way, just thought I'd get some advice from the pros.

I WILL be running:
A single HDD
A DVD Drive
A Graphics card with minimum PSU requirement of 450w

and MAYBE:
A PCI-E x1 SATA Controller card (With an SSD attached)
A PCI-E x1 USB 3.0 HUB

Thanks in advance,

The Antec VP550W, it is a better build and can output a few more watts compared to the Corsair.

Doesn't tell much
I have an old 7900GTO that had a minimum 450w requirement, combined with a modern dual core I can't make it put a 50% load on a 300 watt psu
Either of your chioces are more than enough, both are budget grade, choose the least expensive of the 2 and don't worry about the # of 12v rails
