Hey guys, I'm need to upgrade my psu, Here's the specs: AMD A8-3800 cpu 8gb (2x4 gb) Ram Acer mATX mobo 1x DVD rw drive 1x 1.5 tb 5400rpm hdd XFX radeon 6850 gpu (that's why I need a new psu) Current psu: 300 watt.
I used newegg's calculator and it said I needed about 450 watts. I think the gpu requires 2x6 pin connectors, so that might be an issue. I also don't want to spend more than 50 dollars, the cheaper the better (I'm sure even the worst psu's are better than the generic one I have now, but I still want it to be quality). I would also prefer to buy it off of ncix.com, but if there's a really good deal on newegg I guess that'll be okay.
So can anyone point me in the direction of a cheap, quality, 450 watt+ psu? Thanks for your time

A good, 550 watt or 650 watt will be sufficient for your needs.
the modstream is a solid PSU and will meet your needs. $70-$15 out the door = $55 plus another $20in MIR. you won't find a better deal for that price
