the modstream is not nearly as good (quality/stability-wise) as the powerstream, even though it is OCZ. But the neopower is really excellent and stable (i have it). It just is a bit underpowered for MY system, but should be OK for yours.

Underpowered? Are you sure about that?

I see. I was going to say, a quality 480w supply should be able to handle any single graphics card setup with ease, no matter how much other crap you have in your case.

Its really tough to put together a machine which will approach using 480w at full load, let alone while idle.
