Building an htpc the specs are as follows: AMD A6-6400k Gigabyte F2A88XM-DS2 MSI HD7850 1GB OC (R7850-1GD5/OC) WD Caviar Blue 1tb HDD 7,200rpm LG GH22 from an old build SG02B-F USB 3.0 case
A few PSU calculators say about 290w so I was thinking 450/500w PSU I would prefer quiet since its an HTPC and modular is also preferable but can be worked around. APU fan will be replaced with an aftermarket cooler soon when I have the money. My budget for PSU is £40, £45 at a push unfortunately. Input is always appreciated.

More aboutsystem psu requirements
A good quality 400W will probably do you fine, but to be safe, in case you want to upgrade to a more powerful GPU or CPU in the future, get a quality 500W.
Radeon HD 7850 requires 21A and a 500W psu minimum.
