My PSU has blown just to a really Bad Electrical fault in my house which has resulted in the house being rewired.

My Question is i had a Gigabyte 800W Odin GT (Software Controlled) which was great and iv had it ever since my old Intel E6300 with SLI 8800GTX.

I Upgraded a few Months back some might so downgraded on the VGA front but i just didnt need the power of twin 8800GTX.

My Current Setup is

i7 920 (Stock Speeds)
6GB DDR3 10600
Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R
2x Dual Layer SATA Writers
2x 1TB Samsung F1
1x Sapphire 5770 1GB Vapor X
Antec P182 Case

So im looking at a PSU to run this id love to get the same as i had but its £100+ and truthly i can only afford around £70 at the moment . So What W is the lowest i could go and what can u suggest in my budget

Only must is it has to be Modular

without more information like are you overclcoking or any other add ons you plan to use, this link tells me your pc as configured above uses 341 watts so in that case I would go with 4-500 watts, however always plan for upgrades in which case go with at least a good 650W corsair or such. I myself have an i7 930 @4.2Ghz and 5870 and use an OCZ 700W power supply.. I hope this information helps you always leave at least 20% overhead on your power supply. if you have any more questions, feel free to ask and we would be more than happy to help you out.
