I'm buying a new PSU but don't know which one is better. Here are the 2:

OCZ Fatal1ty 550W Modular PSU

Corsair CX500 V2 500W Non-Modular PSU
http://www.ebuyer.com/278634-corsair-500w-cx-v2-psu-cmp...

I'm tied between Corsair being a better company or OCZ with 50W more and it's modular. So please help me tech geniuses. Thanks in advance. Also if there are any alternatives you can tell me that are under £60 I'd greatly appreciate it.

They are similar. I am glad that you picked name-brand units that are pretty efficient.

Just be sure that your power needs are accurate:

Both are good units.

Thanks for the fast reply, so it doesn't make a difference if I go with OCZ? as it's modular and has an extra 50W. Thanks aswell for the website, it says I need 380W on full load but just being on the safe side and if I need to upgrade in the future.

the 600w version is only about £7 more if you want a bit more power
