    I am trying to choose between 2 power supplies for a new computer I am building.
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371001
    Antec True Power Trio 650w
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817702003
    BFG Tech 650w

    I have an Asus M2N32 WS Professional board, X2 5200 chip, PNY 8800 GTS video Card, 2 GB dual channel DDR2 800, couple hard drives, dvd burners, etc.

    I am not concerned about the price difference or the fact that the BFG is out of stock. I am not getting them from newegg. I am getting them from a local compusa that is going out of business so they are both around 80-90. They have a 1000w bfg there but that would cost me 200 and I don't have the money to spend on that. So any thoughts on which is better, or what you would choose.

    Only an opinion but I have had good luck with antec products. You have more connectors on the bfg and a 1amp higher power rating on your rails than the antec but I am not familiar with bfg products and how well there specs are to actual usuage. I'd say do a little more looking on the net for reviews of each.
