    Go for the OCZ because it's slightly cheaper and they have excellent tech support.

    epower/tagen or fortron all the way, ocz are made by fortron last i checked :)

    oh some new ocz are fortron most are topower, a good oem but u pay for the ocz name.

    those are the OEM's that make psu's for what companys, antech also has started getting psu's from a couple lower quility companys lately from what i have read as well as ordering worse units fron cwt, avoid them.

    my advice is an epower 500/550 watt psu with 20+20 amps on the 12v rails, or a fortron unit psu, both companys will give you better bang for the buck then "top name" units, infact fortron is a top name in this market :D

    my 400watt fortron saga psu(12cm fan) is running my whole system without even a slite flux on any of the rails, x1900xt(says i need a 420watt psu on the box), 4 hdd's, 2 burners, overclocked mobo/ram/cpu, modem, 7 lighted fans, it dosnt even get worm(exaust temp never gets warm, meaning the psu isnt struggling at all)

    dont worrie about name, worrie about specs and quility, any of the ones in that quote should be decent to great(antech and turbolink are so/so these days tho due to mixed ordering with lesser OEM's)

    not really, its more a gimmic, may be needed in a few years, but by then they will have moved to another standred from atx, probbly to the full server standred insted since it can deal with more load.

    honestly, just grab a fortron 400 or 500/550 watt psu with dual 12v and your set till they change to a new standred.

    Antec's were never really high end power supply's anyways, kinda a good middle ground, or upper middle ground, unless you buy their top of the line, but then you pay blood for a well known name that sells in BestBuy.

    I have ordered from ZZF many times.
    They used to be a different name, but the same great service and always shipping is free.
    I ordered a new OCZ XGamer700 Watt PS and it was shipped yesterday.
    If you order from during this month, select the Free Shipping, then pay for the order via PayPal. They will upgrade to 2nd day fedex at no charge.
    My new PS will be here tomorrow.
    They are a lot smaller than the EGG.
    Very simular in quality and serive.
    I would not hesitate in orderin from them.

    According to DFI Street Forums, this is the optimum power supply for all DFI NF4 and later Motherboards.
    Will handle SLi or Crossfire with any combination of cards selected.
    It does have all the connections for these boards.

    The price of ZZF is $139.99 and has a $25.00 rebate if purchased by 12/15/06.
