    Do you have a better suggestion for about the same price range?? Maybe something for future upgrades?

    Look at the output rails and go with your first pick of the two.

    I am not a fan of thermaltake PSU's.

    They have some good ones and they have some crappy ones. I just replaced a 420 watt less than 1 year old in the 3200+ machine.

    It didn't pop but the rails were going everywhere on it. Dipping to 10v on the 12v rail(I did double check with a fluke 322.) I'll never buy another of those crash causing lame PSU's.

    Thermaltake is supplied by many manufacturers. If you get a good one, you get a good one. If you don't, you could fry your machine.
