The antec true power is just about the most reliable powersupply out there, remember when looking for a powersupply the Wattage is not usually all that important what you need for overclocking or just a solid stable PC is non-fluctuating lines of power, the antec is famous for providing very reliable power, now the thermaltake I have also heard has pretty steady lines but I'd still say go with the Antec.

It would be quite short-sighted to spend the essentially the same money on a TT as what a TP430 costs. They are not the same supply, so there isn't any wonder that they aren't the same cost. The TP430 is a lot better unit. You might be able to get one from directron at a better price, newegg isn't particularly strong on Antec power supplies.
