Best under 80 AUD/60 USD PSU for my gaming build?

Pc build:

Cpu: Intel Xeon E3 1230 V5
Mobo: MSI Xeon E3 Krait Gaming V5 Workstation
Ram: Kingston HyperX Fury 16GB (2x8GB) 2133MHz DDR4 Memory
GPU: XFX Radeon RX 480 GTR OC 8GB
Storage: WD Blue 1TB, 750 Evo 120GB
Case: Corsair Carbide 200r

I was gonna get an XFX TS 550w but Its out of stock where Im buying it so I cant get that.
Also If necessary I could push the price up to about 100 AUD.

Thanks in advance!

  1. If the TS is out of stock, see if you can pick up the XFX 550W bronze fully wired.
    Got this unit for ~6 years now, great unit.
    Basically any XFX is fine but the XT.
    Alternatively go for a Seasonic
    A Fractal Design Edison M
    An EVGA supernova
    An Antec High Current
    Or a Corsair Rmi

    Been looking all over for any XFX 500ish watts PSUs and I can't find any for a decent price. It's like they've dissapeared from Australia. But thanks, Ill look into your other recommendations.

    A good quality PSU rated at a minimum of 450 W is recommended.

    Some good quality PSU's to consider, and limited to $100 AUD -

    Antec HCG-520 <- non-modular but very good quality. Unavailable??

    Antec HCG-520M <- semi-modular. Very good quality.

    Cooler Master V450S <- Also good quality unit!

    I think I'm gonna go with the V450S since its very well reviewed, has good efficiency and has sufficient wattage for my build. Thx man.
  5. Vp isn't great...... I've taken the liberty of contacting pccg last week, and they are getting stock in in two weeks time. TS 550w or TS Gold 650w are what you want to go.
    Edit: See below
  6. The V450S is a good quality unit with very good performance. Look here.

    Primary and secondary electrolytics (Panasonic/Matsushita and Suncon/Sanyo and ChemiCon) are high quality. Build is high quality. Performance (voltage regulation and ripple suppression) is very good to excellent!
  7. OH!
    My bad, I was thinking of the VP series by Antec for some reason.... :(
    The VS is perfectly fine for budget builds, one of the better value ones out there just short of a Seasonic.
