Hey everybody, I'm running a computer with a Phenom II x4 @ 2.5 ghz, a gtx 460 with possibility of overclock, , 2 DIMMS of 2gb 1.5v ddr3 to total @ 4gb. One HDD, one DVDRW, some 120mm fans. Will this psu be enough? : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I'm hoping that's enough, if not I can get this : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Personally I would go for the NEO ECO with a 460.

Personally I have heard bad reviews of antec power supplies but im not really one to judge considering iv never bought one.
I would reccommend maybe pushing the budget a little more and investing in a slightly better one. The Wattage is fine but you could go a little higher if you plan on upgrading in the future.
Try and find a Bronze rated psu (maybe modular?) I would like to keep more of a "backing" to my computer and not risk damaging parts with fualty psu or surges.

Just my 2cents. Good luck on the build.

Bad reviews of Antec? Antec is one of the best brands there is. In line with Corsair and Seasonic. I've built with many of their power supplies.

id recommend bigcyco1's psu. when selecting a psu, you want to avoid using the molex to 6 pin convertor as much as possible. the 460 requires 2 of them, and the budget vp only gives 1.

Agreed. Antec uses Delta and Seasonic as OEMs for most of their units and they are generaly top quality. In fact the Neo Eco is a Seasonic made unit.

Hes full of it or misinformed The models made by CWT are unreliable maybe but the Delta/Seasonic models are very good.

CWT no longer makes any Antec power supplies. FSP, Delta, Seasonic and Enhance Electronics are their OEMs. And CWT has really improved since those old models. They make most of Corsair's lineup.

Flextronics is finally making some new models for Corsair. The AXi 760, AXi 860 and the AX 1200i as well as the 1200AX. Can't wait for those reviews as the 1200AX is Corsair's highest rated power supply with a 9.8 from jonnyguru.

Not too sure about these new TX models from Chicony Power Technology though. I have never heard of them. I hope they live up to Corsair standards.

I have had the page bookmarked, in case i ever need to do a quick study on a psu, its oem, 12v rail calculated and reviews done for me. It also lets me know when a company is about to push out a new line of psus before its release, as psu marketing is pretty quiet.

Yeah. you're the one who recommended me this psu originally but now I was wondering if I could save $20.00 by going lower but still with Antec. I thought it'd be fine cuz the 12v rail has a lot of power but I guess I need a 520 for some reason from what I'm reading.

It seems as if everyone is voting for the NEO ECO 520 so I'll go with that.
