They cost about the same on NewEgg.

Anyone care to share opinion on which is better and why?

p.s. please don't suggest alternative psus, lets just say those 2 are my only choices.

TIA

Edit: found my answer in power supply thread

Hopefully you found out that the TruPower is the better PS. A lot better. That said, IMO, you can't go wrong w/an Antec PS, period. :)

TP all the way. Quality over quantity in psu's, plus the other features (sata, fan-only, etc) are great.

TruePower: Dedicated circuits for each power rail, SATA connectors, 4 pin connectors for fans (controls speed = quieter computer), fans are double ball bearing.

Smartpower: Standard power rail setup, no dedicated fan connectors, no SATA connectors, sleeve bearing fans.

The SmartPower PSU is still a quality unit that will handle most rigs with no problem, but I'd say go for TruePower if you were making the choice between the two.
