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?

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.
