Hi,

I need to upgrade my PSU as I need a new GPU that needs more than 300w. I would like to have 500w :D 

My motherboard is a nVidia nForce 430 .AKA. n430. I'm not sure if it's uAtx, Micro ATX or just ATX!

Much appreciated!

Corsair and Seasonic are two brands that have a reputation for high quality power supplies that consistently earn high marks in technical reviews. They are reliable, stable, and come with a 5 year warranty. Some of the newer models come with a 7 year warranty. In addition, some of the newer models have earned a gold certification for energy efficiency.

The Corsair VX550 would be an appropriate choice if you are sure about power requirements. The power supply is a heavy duty unit that can easily power an overclocked system equipeed with just about any single video card made except for the new Nvidia Fermi.

First of all, thanks for such a response!

But I live in the UK, sorry I didn't mention on the first post. Another link please?

Here's the same PSU at a uk online retailer:

I've used Microdirect in the past and have always had good experiences with them. Prices can't be beaten and delivery times are good too.
