I need a cheap decent PSU for a basic budget system - AMD x2 4200, 2GB, 7600GT card
I noticed the importance of a good PSU but if we assume a strict cap of 50$. What is the best choice?
The Fortran PSU seem highly recommended.
What should I choose.
Thanks!

When it comes to PSU's cheap and decent don't go together, FSP group makes a fine PSU as a matter of fact i use a 750W unit in my system.
antec makes quality stuff that might fit your ridiculous budget....

A cheap and decent PSU? Don’t skimp on your Power Supply. Look here and make your choice: http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?t=10...

A cheap PSU can cause all sorts of problems not to mention shortening the life of your components.

Given your constraints, an FSP is probably your best choice.

After the mail in rebate, the Antec 430W Earthwatts PSU is only $30, and $60 before rebate. The Earthwatts 380W is $20 after rebate, $50 before. The PC Power and Cooling Silencer 360W is $50 and Silverstone ST-400 is $50. Those would probably be the best PSUs in the price range, I'd choose the 430W Antec out of all of them, but would have no problems in choosing one of the others.(all prices from newegg, btw).
