Power supply shopping - Antec or Enermax

Which company has the better supplies between Enermax and Antec's True Power supplies?

First, I'm not sure what rating I should get. I've got a PIII/socket 370 combo. I've also got a hard drive cooler, two case fans, and the fan for my heatsink.

Right now I've got a Antec Original 300w, and when I monitor my lines I can see how my 12v and 3.3v lines dip frequently. I was thinking about getting the Antec True 330w Power supply, but is there a better choice?

thank you

After experiencing quality problems with serveral Antec power supplies, I would recommend Enermax or Sparkle.

I am buying a computer for college and have all the components decided upon (down to the floppy drive) except for the PSU. I have heard great things about Enermax, and am aiming to get one of their units. However, I'm not too sure which model (of the many they have) I should get. I know I want a 431watt unit, but which 431w model would you guys suggest?

They're both fine, but Enermax isn't superior to everything else, and yesterday I fixed my first ATX Enermax (previous ones were AT). Another good make is FSP (Fotron, Source, and Sparkle).

The more expensive model have more feature that allow you control the fan. I think is not very useful. I just get the cheaper model.
