The Antec PSU are known to have compatability problems using the 965/975 chipsets

The Tt is a well known POS, the ToughPower series is the only ones to buy if you must buy Tt, any other model is an accident waiting to happen, they have some of the worst PSU's on the planet :rolleyes:

to make it simple, forget about watts and all that rubbish, you want to find a PSU with lots of amps on its +12v rail, something with at least 34A.

what you think about the silverstone modular 1 ST60F??
http://www.silverstonetek.com/products-60f.htm

Personally, I prefer the Mushkin 650w, simply because I've tested it and know its a rock solid unit.

Yes even 2 or even one 12V rail is good (my Tagen is two rail but has the option to switch to 1 rail) as long as you have at the very least 32A

A lot of good PSU's with even 4 rails are capable of switching automatically to one rail if that is whats needed, the only reason we are seeing multiple 12V rails on newer PSU's now is to meet the ATX 2.0 to 2.03 speci safety guidelines that cannot exceed 20A per rail to comply

The Mushie and Silverstone are both excellent choices, just remember, you should always buy the best possible PSU you can afford, its the first building block for your whole system :)

OCZ makes great PSU(From Fotron Source, also recommended for DFI motherboards.), Mushkin also has great PSU, and same with SilverStone. Either one of the three are great.
