It'll be a long long time before I buy another Antec PSU. All of the
ones I've bought have failed eventually. I can't remember the exact
models, but they were all Truepower ones, two ATX ones rated at
something like 450-550w, and an EPS one rated at something like
650-700w, so they were all quite beefy (and not terribly cheap either).

It appears I'm not alone either:
