so i need to buy a PSU on Tuesday and the PSU i had my eyes on(the Huntkey 80+ gold) has just been put out of my reach by a wrecked bike tyre and i read somewhere that CIT have an 80+ range, now my max budget inc delivery is £30 and I'm considering these 2:

I'm leaning towards the CIT atm but if there is an 80+ PSU within my budget i will see if i can get it, wattage doesn't matter but safety and efficiency are very important, it needs a 20 pin ATX connector and if you have any suggestions other than these i would also be open to them but im really just curious as to what i can get with my somewhat meager budget.

the system currently runs on a 210w PSU, I'm replacing it due it being a server size and the system has a new case, its an old p4(the 530 model) I'm re purposing, i may add a low end graphics card in later so i can run windows 7 on it, Intel GMA 900 is far too slow ATM

as for waiting I'm afraid that's just not an option, and if i was to wait i would be going for the Huntkey PSU, anyone know anything about the CIT 80+ range?

Never heard of it. You can take a risk with it if you want...it only has to deliver less than half its rated capacity so it should be good enough.

The problem with a poorly designed psu is it rarely deliverers what it's specs say. How many posts have there been on Tom's where a crappy psu caused problems - you get what you pay for. If you don't care much about the hardware you're powering then go for the cheapest solution & cross your fingers.
