Looking for a budget PSU of approx £60 GBP ($90 USD)

Must be modular/semi-modular

Must look good in a windowed case

Must be safe, with a fan, with pci-e connectors and at least 1 molex?

Seasonic 520w PSU should do the trick or get the corsair 600gs if you want looks

You would have been best off with one of these Seasonic units

Unfortunaly its £103.47 ($160 USD) in my country so it was out of budget, I was going to go with the Corsair HX650m but I want to get it built as quickly as possible so I just got the Akasa PSU for £50 ($77 USD) as im 17yrs so I dont have the money to get everything straight away

Silverstone Strider Plus 500W. No doubt one of the best bang for buck semi-modular PSUs out there.

The CX 500M is a great quality budget PSU.

I was considering this PSU for quite sometime until I saw reviews telling me to avoid the CX series are all costs as they are not very good quality.

I have just ordered the Akasa Venom 550w Modular PSU?

What do you think?

Never heard of Akasa, my gut says the CX was a better route but I don't really know since I have no experience with that brand. The negative reviews are for the regular CX 500 not the 500M which has been built with better components.

You might like to know, I have cancelled the Akasa PSU and ordered the Corsair CX500m :) 

Also, if you don't mind me asking... how to you know the CX500m has better components that the CX500?
