Psu

I.m looking to replace my Akasa psu with a new one. I want it al least 550w (600 or over much better), preferably (?) -> modular, but not indispensable, two rails with 30 amps. or more (could be quad rails). No more than 160 to 170 $. Eficiency of 80% and over. I had see a lot of psu lately and need a little help.
Would upgrade to an Opteron 170-175, Kingston Hyperx pc-3200 Ram (2 sticks of 1 gb) and a new video card don't know yet. Also looking for a cheap version of XP os.

So far...

1- Zippy 6500PE http://www.stayonline.com/detail.aspx?ID=7500 (500 w and 70% eficiency)

2-Enermax Noisetaker http://www.2cooltek.com/product.php?...&cat=78&page=1 (couldn't get rails amps, 80% eficiency)

3-Enermax Maximum Plus http://www.2cooltek.com/product.php?...&cat=80&page=1 (75% efficiency)

4-ZIPPY ALUM. ALLOY 500W http://cgi.ebay.com/ZIPPY-ALUM-ALLOY...item6882423421 ( 500w and 70% eficiency).

Sugestion are very welcome.

BTW witch is better for gaming WXP Home or Pro?

Cadaveca posted THIS site a while back. This guy beats the living crap out of a PSU. If it makes it through his test and scores well it will work for you.

I did read somewhere that Enermax had some QA issues as of late. May be resolved by now...

I wonder if 600W is enough capacity? Knowing you, Strongwolf, you'll have to have dual Vidcards along with that monstro dual-core CPU!

600W should easily suffice if the unit has good regulation and is built well. The Zippy's in your list are built second to none.

Some of the units I'd recommend for your budget would be:
Zippy GSM 6600P
Corsair 520HX and the 620 W (OEM Seasonic)
Seasonic M12
Silverstone Zeus ST56ZF and the 750ZF (both are Etasis built).
PCP&C Silencer series (a bit overpriced IMO forn an OEM Seasonic).

None of these units, except maybe the M12 is 80% efficient, but all are built very well.
