XFX 650W xxx edition
Cooler Master Silent Pro M500
OCZ ModXStream Pro 700W
Seasonic M12II 520W

I need opinion on choosing a PSU for my build, I'm going to run my old single HD 5830 and I just want to know what is the better choice, I'm willing to give 70 euro's max for a PSU so I guess that's around $100 lower will be appreciated? the PSU's listed above are all around 70 euro's, I think some are overkill with their 650-700W, but how low do i want to go? will 500W be enough?

Yep! if the price is right the XFX is a very good unit.
Even the M12II is a solid choice if you never plan to xfire..

In order of quality: Seasonic, XFX (built by Seasonic), OCZ, then CoolerMaster. The XFX is the best balance between quality and capacity.

For a single 5830, any will do nicely.

Of the 4, I'd get the XFX. Sooner or later, you are going to want to expand or upgrade.
