I am thinking of replacing my old 350W psu cause i think its causing my pc to reboot several times before it boots properly ( although after booting i can play games such as bioshock 2 on high easily )

Not sure if rebooting a few times 'heats' the pc up so it works ? :fou: 

Anyway ive got

e6600 2.4ghz core duo
2gb ddr2 ram
hdd 320gb sata
asrock conroexfire-esata2 mobo i think
hd4850 radeon

Anyone suggest a good psu and a good website for the UK delivery? i am trying to get a cheap one e.g £50, theres a OCZ 500w thats why about that on ebuyer but i am not sure if this is a good choice as my knowledge on psu goodness is crap :cry: 

All reviews says most psus are decent but i am looking for some opinions as to whats the best choice for my current system.

Thaaaannks

Several folks on here will say Corsair, Antec, SeaSonic are the way to go but I can't see anything wrong with an OCZ PSU myself :)

yeah, peeps says those are better but damn! OCZ's stats are pretty good and its about £20 cheaper for a psu with more watts and Amps on the 12v rail!

The differences most likely come down to efficiency. OCZ are a pretty reputable brand and I can't see anything wrong with them. You should be fine on 500W as well, but should consider a larger size PSU if you intend to crossfire at any stage.

obsidian86m - Dang! Another company that is no longer furnishing power cords with their power supplies. I guess they didn't think about individuals who build systems for other, sell their old systems, or donate them to a school or charity.
