OCZ is decent, good and bad like most other brands There are no reviews of that model but based on your budget I'd give the go ahead for the reasons I stated in my last post Rugger a c 158 ) Power supply September 4, 2012 1:17:01 PM XFX and OCZ have some great prices on PSUs in the UK. Take a look at the OCZ ZS 550 and the XFX Core 550W; either will handle any single GPU PC that you can make, are good quality, and can be bought for about 45-50. I'd stick with the XFX.
