Hi all

I'm seeking opinions and advice on the following Power Supply Unit.

Antec 450W PSU - 120mm Fan VP450 4x SATA 1x PCI-E

Is it a good PSU?

I'm told by somebody that Corsair 430W CX PSU 4x SATA 1x PCI-E would be a better option however I'm wondering if it'll be to cope with a graphics card like ATI Radeon 5770 as it requires a minimum of 450 Watt?

I'm willing to spend between £30 - £35.

I'm sure it costs a lot more than £35. I'm just willing to spend between £30 - £35 as it's for a budget PC. Is there any other viable option?

i would say it would be ok to run the 5770 on a 430w psu.But do this on your own terms.

But yeah it would be ok.
