Antec vs Rosewill power supply.

I am putting together a new build that will be used for video editing and converting as well as VOB playback. Here are some of the build specs:

The case will be an Antec 1200

CPU: Intel Core i7-930 2.8GHz 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1366 Quad-Core Desktop Processor -

MOBO:GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD3R LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard -

Hard Drives: - Western Digital Caviar Green WD20000CSRTL 2TB SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -

I am still searching for a suitable Video card. since newegg is having st patricks day sale I beieve I will find a decent one soon. I wont be doing any gaming so a good card with HDMI output will get me by. If you have any suggestions please feel free to advise me.

Here's where my issue popped up. Initiall I was going to get the Antec 850w which came in a combo deal with the Antec 1200 case. But because of the St Patricks day sale, newegg has posted a 1000w Rosewill PSU for $105. I would like to know if Rosewill has better quality PSU's than Antec? I have posted the links associated with both supply's below.

More about antec rosewill power supply
  1. Antec
    Rosewill's are not known for thier quality, quite the opposite actually.
  2. yep, definitely antec
  3. Antec!

    Rosewill has a history of offering powersupplies of questionable quality and value. They do make a few that are adequate and a few that are better but overall their quality is inconsistant.
  4. so that must be why they're offering a 1000w supply for only $109. I guess the antec is gonna be the answer.
  6. Just in case there's still some doubt, Antec.
  7. Another vote for Antec.

    How about a Corsair?

    Card-wise, if you're not gaming then look at the Radeon 5400s or 5500s - all the Eyefinity and power-saving loveliness of the new ATI cards but dead cheap.
  8. Im just looking at the antec 850w psu since it comes bundled with the antec 1200 case and I'll get $20 off. Im going to have alot of HD's plugged in so I need as many sata hook-ups as I can get.
