Need help getting PSU (UK)

Hi I'm in desperate need of a new PSU at around 10-30.00

I have the following:

Ati radeon 4850 (512mb)
Intel duo core CPU e8400 @ 3.0 -
6GB Ram

At the moment I think I'm currently using a 500w power supply but the make is rubbish, and I doubt it's 500 watt being given. I think a 300-400 watt PSU will suffice but 400-500 would give me headroom for any future upgrades as I'm looking for an Ati radeon 6xxx series and a Quad core CPU upgrade maybe next year..

Can anybody suggest a PSU in the uk? Thanks.

Anything from a reliable name will do.

At £30 you aren't going to get a huge amount, but then you don't need much in the way of wattage. Here's a few options from scan.co.uk (being a little flexible with price)

450W Antec - £30.54

430W Corsair - £36.52

Both of those are pretty reasonable. Corsair PSUs are really highly rated but that one is pretty bottom of the range.

Also spotted this
450W Powercool - £31.90

If you fancy a modular PSU, that seems like a decent price. Used a Powercool before in a budget build and had no complaints.

Bottom line is what samuelspark said though, more or less anything will work.
