Hello, 2 days ago, I was playing a game called Rust and I start smelling this burning smell. I assume it is my mother cooking some steak for me, but it wasn't it was coming from my PC, so I tell my friend I smell a burning and my PC immediately turns off and 2 seconds later I hear 3 bangs *bang.. bang.. bang* so I start to shit myself and worry. So I go to look at my PC and I smell a firework smell and text my friend I was talking to (he's good with computers) So I tell him that my PC has just exploded. So he says it could be your PSU. I immediately say fuck. So I am going to order a PSU on Friday. I am asking 2 things: Is my PC Wrecked? and which PSU should I order? I have a decent PC with 4 cores, 2gb ddr5 gpu, 8gb ram, and 3 fans. I need it to be in the price range of £30.

what is your current psu?
lets hope you didnt damage another pc component

pick one you can afford in this list
with the given spec you have, i assume you have to buy XFX 550 which is £50

Well do you think I can get a 30 pound one till july, when I can get a very good one? For the last 2 years I have had a shit one. Do you think I can buy a bad one now until july then I can buy a corsair.
