  1. I am looking to buy a new PSU for my PC. I have narrowed the choice down to two and need help deciding. These are my system specs:

    Processor:
    AMD Athlon XP 2400+
    Motherboard:
    MSI KT4V-L
    Memory:
    1.5GB PC2700 RAM
    Cooling:
    4 Fans 80mm
    Videocard:
    nVidia 6600 256mb
    Hard Disk(s):
    Maxor 300GB ATA 133

    380W Enermax Coolergiant and Antec Basiq Power 350W

    You guys have any thoughts? (Always appreciate the help)

    Both Antec and Enermax are good PSU brands, but the better of the two would be the Enermax one.

    The Enermax one has 380Watts, which is slightly more than the Antec one, but a mere 30Watts is hardly the point.

    The Antec one has two +12V rails @ 10A and 13A, whereas the Enermax one has two +12V rails @ 14A and 13A.

    So ultimately the Enermax one would the the better choice, in terms of both the wattage and amperage on the +12V rails.

    Both would be good choices, but if there is not much of a price difference between the two (or if you don't mind paying more for the Enermax) then the Enermax unit would be better.

    Hope this helps you! :)
