New PSU

I'm planning to build m new PC this summer after having postponed it last xmas.
I'm looking to start off with getting a new PSU as the one on my other machine is dying. So, I was wondering if you guys can help me out here. I have no idea about what I should be looking at in particular, but I always come across seeing stuff about 12v rail or something like that.

I have one PSU in mind at the moment and it's the Antec NeoPower 480W for it's cable management and ATX v2.0. I will be needing v2 for when I build my AMD64 with the nf4 boards and pci-e.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.
Thanks

That is a good choice ming. I myself am using the Antec TruePower 430W PSU for my AMD64 system. My board doesn't use PCIexpress. AGP on mine.

OCZ makes some good PSUs but I think they are kind of expensive

Check out Anandtech.com Hardocp.com and Xbitlabs.com and see if they have any recent PSU reviews. I've seen some recently but didn't read.

from my understanding of the 12v rail it needs to be bare minimum 18A...that is the bare minimum. I would look for something at 24A or higher
