Need help choosing a good PSU

Hello, I recently built a simple gaming pc. All of it is new except for my generic PSU which I bought in Sept 2013. Back then my specs were an Athlon II X3, radeon 5670, x1 4GB Ram, x2 Seagate HDD, 20 inch LG20EN43 monitor, Edifier X100. I had no problems with my PSU.

Now I bought new specs, Intel core i3 4130, Radeon R7 260x, 8GB Ram (x2 4GB ram), x2 seagate HDD, Edifier X100, HP Optical Drive, LG 20EN43.

My choices are:
HEC COUGAR SL-600W ATX PSU
HUNTKEY APFC 600W PSU
HUNTKEY GREEN POWER 550W
CROWN EVOLVE 600W PSU

I'm on a budget and availability is also scarce. I'm not gonna overclock or I don't have any special needs like crossfire, dual gpu or anything like that. I just want a good running PC

  1. I wouldn't use any of them PSU's as none of them are trusted at all.
    What website are you using and what's your budget for a PSU?
  2. How about this? Its got good reviews

  3. Best answer
    Huntkey are a tier 5 PSU manufacturer they're "NOT RECOMMENDED." - According to http://www.eggxpert.com/forums/thread/323050.aspx

    Is there anything you can buy from the following manufacturers:-
    Seasonic
    Corsair
    XFX
    OCZ
    Antec
    Rosewill

    Or anything I have missed that're tier 1/2 on this link. ( http://www.eggxpert.com/forums/thread/323050.aspx )
  4. How about HEC COUGAR SL-600W ATX PSU?
    here is reference: http://www.enigma-phil.com.ph/?page=pricelist
  5. HEC COUGAR is also a tier 5 PSU manufacturer.
    You should only buy a PSU that is in tier 1 or tier 2 of the list as these are the PSU's that will definitely keep your system working properly.

    May I ask, what site are you looking at?
  6. It's the pricelist from the store I'm gonna buy from. I'll write down the brands you've given me, really useful
  7. alright. Just remember buy nothing from the tier 4/5. Tier 3 will work if there is nothing tier 1/2.
