AMD athlon X2 4600+ (am2)
Asus m2n32-sli deluxe
ATI x1900xtx
OCZ 2GB ddr2 800/pc2-6400 ram
Thermaltake Tsunami case
DVD burner
2 320 gb harddrives

Do you guys think the powerstream will be able to handle it or should I pick the 600W gamexstream to be on the safe side ? Also, will either of these PSU's fit alright into the case with no problems? Thanks.

i'd go for the 600watt gamex. but thats only between those 2 choices, have u considered the FSP 600 or 700watt. or seasonic 600? or enermax liberty? i'd take any of those over OCz power suppies

For a single video card, a 600W PSU is silly. 500W is plenty. I'd prefer a 480W Seasonic personally.

Between the two, the 520ADJSLI for sure.

But why does it HAVE TO BE an OCZ?

Well im stuck here in Canada and prefer to buy locally and the store where im getting my parts from only have OCZ , Antec, or Enermax to choose from. The 520W is 10 bucks more expensive than the 600W. Anyone know why this is?? They also sell the Enermax Liberty ELT500AWT. Is that a better option than the OCZ's?

I would have to say it is.

The gamerx is just a rebadged FSP epsilon.
