Here is my current pc spec :

Finally after 6 years of faithful service my power supply has gone. Label picture below :

I'm looking for some guidance on my next power supply purchase as I know very little about them . My budget is around £50 - £80. based on my setup what would you recommend?

I've done a little shopping around and these psu's seems to tick the right boxes. Are they suitable or is there something better for me based on my needs.

FWIW:  For the system reflected...all of the PSUs listed are overkill, IMO...and there is no return from overkill that I'm aware of.

 

I'd get something...so, I have something like this for my systems:

 

http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Builder-Watt-EPS%C2%A0-CX600/dp/B0092ML0OC/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1364430591&sr=1-1&keywords=computer+power+supply+600w

 

http://www.amazon.com/Ultra-U12-40873-650W-Power-Supply/dp/B0044950GW/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1364430767&sr=1-2&keywords=computer+power+supply+600w

 

Unless you have a heavy-duty graphics card installed...there's really no reason to look at the higher-wattage PSUs and think that they are necessary...IMO.

The XFX power supply is by far the better, well built power supply out of the lot.

Thanks for the reply. Also seen a Corsair HX650 V2 Power Supply 650 Watt 80 PLUS® Gold Certified Modular Psu on ebay for £50. Toss up between those two then.

FWIW, the Corsair and the XFX are likely about the same power supply (Seasonic) as far as internals go.  Buy on price, and warranty.


I am a retired Ford tech. Next to Fords, any computer is a piece of cake. (The cake, its not a lie)

3770K @4.5, Corsair H100, GTX780, 16gig Samsung, Obsidian 700 (yes there is a 700)
