    Hi.

    I wanna change my PSU for one that have some headroom for possibly upgrades.

    Both are sli/crossfire capable and for what It seems are far better tha my 550W CM.

    Need to say that both are expensive but Its the better I can afford now.

    The Antec model have 650W with 3 rails of 19A each, the TT have 600W with 4 rails of 18A each and have also the ability to plug only the neccesary connectors to the PSU.

    Which one you'll pick up??

    Thanx.

    ThermalTake's ToughPower lineup is very solid. I'd go with the TT :toast:

    Four +12V output circuitry provides stable voltage for system: 12V1/12V2 for processor and

    two PCI-E, 12V3/12V4 for Motherboard, peripherals, and another PCI-E.

    This say in the TT specs.

    It means that the VGA cards can only take 36A???

    cannot find a Corsair model, just this two.

    I readed an article and It seems that the TT model can only spare 36A for the VGA indeed, the PSU looks nice and being modular is nice too, but I'll do a deeper research looking a corsair model, hope I can find it, if not, I think I'll go with this TT.

    Not dissin antec PSU's, I use a few in a few of my rigs, but Thermaltake was the Corsair of yesteryear. Everyone was like "get thermaltake!" like they are with corsair today :p they actually use the same OEM, ChannelWell, so I can see why!
