Cheap but reliable Power Supply?

Hey, I need to get a new power supply for a family member of mine. The system I think, requires very little power.
The components are:

AMD Athlon X2 7850 Black Edition AM2

Zotac GF6100-E-E GeForce 6100 MiniITX AM3 MB

Hard Drive, and Optical Drive, 2G of DDR2 Ram.

Just looking for a new supply that is reliable and doesn't hurt the wallet.

Any help would be appreciated!

  1. Best answer
    Antec EA380 or Corsair CX430 would fit the bill!
  2. ^+1, or the antec basiq or VP series.
  3. This is probably the cheapest PSU I'd go for if I cared at all about reliability:

    That is if you're talking retail. You can get very high quality PSUs and other components for dirt cheap or at least way less than retail on eBay. For example, I got a used Enermax Liberty 500W modular PSU with 22A on both 12V rails for only $28 total. It was $120 back when I bought it new. (I liked it so much I got another.)
    Here's an old newegg link to that PSU:

    EDIT: Whoops, didn't see that you had an mITX board there. I'd still go for the FSP if it'll fit in your case. Can't say I have any experience with mini-ITX power supplies. But do try a quick search on eBay for any particular component before buying it new, since it never hurts and you usually end up saving a lot.
  4. Any GPU's in there?
    If not the Antec 380W should do just fine. Corsair CX430 is a little bit more than the Antec one.

  6. Going to go with the CX430, its only 25 on newegg with rebate. Thanks!
