This is SilentPCReview. The Antec TruePower is not a silent or quiet power supply, so there is no reason to choose it.

Ergo: Go with the Seasonic.

i think it'll be stronger than seasonic.

Don't know what you consider "stronger" since they're both 430 watt PSU's and the Seasonic is considered conservative in its measurements. The Seasonic PSU's consistently show good voltage stability under load.

The Antec PSU is certainly a good one, but as you note, it is not quiet, and the Seasonic definitely is.

I voted with my money and replaced a relatively new Antec TP380S with a Seasonic S12-430 - one of the more significant quieting and cooling improvements to my system.

Greetings & welcome to SPCR!

The thing is, Antec doesn't actually make any power supplies, as far as I know! In fact, Seasonic might even make some units that are sold as Antec?

Seasonic makes top-quality power supplies: they are stable, conservatively rated, and they are among the quietest and most efficient power supplies made. Need I say more?
