CPU Type: DualCore AMD Athlon 64 X2, 2233 MHz (11 x 203) 4200+

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 the USA).

newegg.com only ships in the USA

the cost of shipping a flat rate box of equivalent size to the corsair 450w starts at $58...so that would double its cost

It's all good. Thanks for the advice. Much appreciated. Doesn't matter about Newegg, though I wish we did have them here, as they're deals are so great.

The best deal I can find here in UK for the Corsair 450vx is $85.30 (£53.92) LOL
