    Which PSU?

    I am unable to decide which PSU would be better out of the two below. Any opinions on either

    Hiper HPU-4S435 (435W)
    FSP ATX-400PNF (400W)

    The Hiper has slightly more power but the 12v rail current is slightly greater on the Fortron PSU. Which should i choose?

    well i know that they will both be enough for my system but here are the specs

    AMD S754 Sempron 3100+
    80GB Hard Drive
    DVD/CD-RW drive
    Onboard sound + network card
    1.25gb RAM
    Nvidia Gefoce 7600GT AGP

    I am replacing psu as i am adding new graphics card (the 7600gt) and upgrading my ram from 256mb to 1.25gb and my current psu doesn't have enough power

    OK thanks for that. I was hoping you'd say that because it is cheaper and it means I can buy everything from the same place

    Looks like the Fortron it is then. It wasn't really a surprise to me as i heard that Hiper aren't too good (voltages fluctuating or something) but i was just unsure whether the extra 35W was worth it. Anyway thanks for all the help.
