I'd go with that Antec JamesXP posted. :) That ToPower doesn't even provide an efficiency rating. You can end up saving more money over time with the Antec since its rated at 80% and is also a Seasonic build from what I can remember.

Antec has screwed me enough that I blacklisted them for future purchases, but I have no loyalties or disloyalties that can't be swayed. It does seem to be a better unit, but I am dubious of the low wattage rating.

Someone even mentioned the 380 watt unit since it has a similar rating to the 500 (all have 17A x 2 on the 12v), but it just seems counterintuitive.

Acid,

Silverstone has a nice ST400w Strider unit that Hard Op reviewed favorably. About $50 if you are put off by Antec. However, that EA430 is probably one of the most economical units for your needs, it's a Seasonic build but it's your call.

That's not bad, but y'all are right the antec model is pretty good. I just found a good deal on 2 PSUs in the classifieds here, so that saves me some trouble. Thanks for the help guys!
