Need new PSU

Hey guys, could someone help me, I need a new PSU, as my current one (hiper) has started buzzing a lot.

My system has Phenom 720 x3, 4GB DDR2 1066, GTX 260, 500gb hd. my budget is £45- £50.

I hope someone knows of a good PSU for this price and is good for my configuration :) Thanks!

edit: Is this psu any good? http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=CA-037-OC&groupid=701&catid=123&subcat=

  1. Not bad. Probably one of the only options for a modular PSU. However the cables are a bit short at ~45cm to the first connector, if you need longer lengths then one of the following would be better:

    Silverpower Green Power/Gorilla 500W 80Plus £49

    I can personally say this is a great CPU, and I'm running it myself at the moment.

    Your replies never fail to amaze me.

    Newegg and Amazon do not ship to England.
  5. Well, Amazon.co.uk ships to England, but yes your right, he has the completely wrong links.
  6. IMO, the Corsai CX500 is not as good as the two I listed previously. It has a lower temp rating than the XFX; I couldn't find a temperature rating for the Silverpower. The XFX has higher efficiency than the Corsair or Silverpower.
    Corsair CX500 is built by CWT.
    Both the Silverpower and XFX units I listed are built by Seasonic.
    They are all physically the same size.
    XFX: 9 SATA connectors, 6 4-pin peripheral connectors, 2 EPS12V (CPU) connectors
    Silverpower: 6 SATA connectors, 6 4-pin peripheral connectors
    Corsair: 5 SATA connectors, 4 4-pin peripheral connectors
    They all have 2 PCIe connectors.

    The Cooler Master GX is not worth considering at all.
