Hello,

I want to get a new silent PS, with 80+ certification. I use integrated graphics, sono need for much power. My budget is around $50. What I have found so far are:

- Corsair CX430V2
- OCZ ZS Series 550W
- Cooler Master GX-550W

What do you suggest?

I use ocz with 135mm fan; it's very quiet; mine is only 400w, but plenty for my onboard video.

I'd go with the OZC ZS out of those.

Thanks for your replies.

I'm in Europe (so newegg is not a choice), and these are the supplies I found within my budget:

- Corsair CX430V2 - 51€
- OCZ ZS Series 550W - 67€
- Cooler Master GX-550W - 76€

All other 80+ PS goes above 100€. So, should I choose OCZ? Currently I'm with an old 350W supply (so any of these have enough power), and I want to have as little noise as possible (as I usually do stuff overnight). If I also can save a few bucks with the electric bill, much better.

You can go with corsair if funds are tight.

It's great. Your system is so light it doesn't really matter what you choose.

I read mixed reviews about the FSP, so I finally got the OCZ ZS 550W. It's not completely silent, but it's not above the other coolers on my system (8cm, 5V).
