Both Antec and Corsair get their PSUs from Seasonic's facilities, so they are top notch. I used to own an Antec PSU but I blew it up, it only had 380W and I was trying to persuade my former Venice to go 3Ghz. Then I switched to Thermaltake (I was short oncash) and that one blew up as well when the fan decided it wanted to high-five the fan grill at about 1000 rpm under full load
I decided to stop buying cheap PSUs, so I got a Corsair 520HX which btw ROCKS!
Who makes the PSU isn't as important as how the OEM wants them to build it. Antec's PSUs aren't made with the same quality that Corsair demands. Since power supplies are so crucial to component health and lifespan, I'm willing to pay the premium.
