I have recently bought many things for my budget build and am looking for a cheap power supply that will do me good, for around $50.
I have found some, but i don't know if i should trust them, plus I need over a 400W PSU.

Here are some that i have found!

And again I am on a very tight budget! I have been to PSU calculator and they suggest I need around a 380W so I think im good with over a 400W! If I do need to spend more money please let me know, it will just take me much longer to get the money. Thank you again for reading :hello:

No CoolerMaster ... Antec or maybe Rosewill.

Thank you for the advice. I was think that CoolerMaster was a better known name. But thank you for stoping me before that.

Antec VP450 for $40 is the best value of the PSUs you listed. Review at a reputable site:

There are some Rosewill PSUs that I would recommend, but the Stallion series isn't among them. The Green series is the lowest i would go in their lineup, but would recommend the Antec VP over them.

And is also a viable option for this build at a great price.

I have also just stumbled across this one here
What do you think about it? :D 

A 500watt psu would probably enable you to go with a slightly more powerful video card (you would need to save up a little more money though); that Antec is a good deal at $50, I have the 650watt version and it's as rock-solid as the Canadian Shield. I have heard that the Corsair is a really good one also, and if you intend to follow through on the MIR, then that one would definitely be the best deal of all, if you know that you will be content with 430watts.

Edit: Just in case you didn't notice - the Antec says it does not come with a power cord (because it's "green"), but that shouldn't matter too much as who doesn't have a thousand power cables laying around? Anyway, my Earthwatts did come with a power cord, even though it said it wouldn't.

Thank you I have decided to go with the 500W (green), because I might upgrade in the near future and don't want to worry about not having enough power, and plus I have many cords lying around that (im sure) will go perfectly with this. :D 

A little more money but it will turn out good. :bounce: 
Thank you again.
