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, http://extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp 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.
