I vote Antec. Both are made by Seasonic but the Antec one has a higher wattage output. There is also the High Current Gamer Modular, just look around for it.

Best solution

The Antec psu has slightly better numbers and features such as ;

Antec- Certified Bronze , up to 88% efficiency
XFX- Certified Bronze , up to 85% efficiency

Antec- 48A on the +12v rail
XFX- 44A on the +12v rail

Antec- 620w
XFX- 550w

Antec - a 135mm double ball bearing fan
XFX - a 120mm fan

Antec - All Japanese brand capacitors for reliability, Gold-plated High Current terminals for optimal conductivity
XFX - Solid State Capacitors

Antec - 2x - 6+2 pin connectors
XFX - 1- 6 pin and 1- 6+2 pin connectors

Both are SLI and Cross Fire ready but given the better numbers and features of the Antec psu I would say that the choice would be Antec , however you would be ok selecting either one as they are both quality power supplies.

The nice thing the XFX PSU's have going for them is in many test's that I've seen the voltage stays rock solid and moves less than comparable PSU's would. From owning one myself I can also tell you that they are very quite, and stay very cool (although mine doesn't have much of a load on it). I would still say the antec, more power, and the efficiency bump doesn't hurt. Depends what the price difference is though.
