Uuuh So I was just in graphics card and they told me I would need a 1000W power supply

These are my two choices, which one should I pick and why? thanks in advance!

Which one should I pick? I really like the vampire I think I need to pick that one because the power supply has 1 12v 36 amp which is more than enough I think for the r9 295

Also white :)

The build this is for is also swaggass.

They both are the same things, while the vampires series are decent I would get a Rosewill Lighting 1000 watt PSU for only $19 more or a Evga G2 1000 watt psu if possible.

honestly don't skimp on the PSU. Raidmax is not a good psu. here is the tier list

As vagabond recommended the EVGA G2 1000 if possible, its a tier 1 (the best), made by superflower, has a 10 year warranty.... it will definitely last you longer.

That Raidmax PSU is fine, the OEM is Hec and they make numerous of other PSU's that are decent like the Fractal Design Integra series.

36amp is a bit low... It may run I to issues with that.
