I'm Upgrading My PC, And After Being Told That 500w+ Should Support It Fine, I Need A Decision Of Which To Get, The Suggestions Are Below...

If You Have Suggestions Make Sure That It's 500 Watt+, And I'm Not Looking To Spend That Much, £60 Being The Budget, And Heres The Case To Make Sure That It Fits :)

  1. Well, we need the specs of your pc before we can judge what PSU to suggest.
  2. A good 500W PSU would be vastly sufficient for anything short of SLI/CFX.
  3. Good budget psu in the 500 watt range are the corsair builder series. I do not know what the prices would be in the uk though.
  4. 60 euros is 77 dollars, both that you have linked would good choices, i would go with the xfx one though
  5. or seasonic
  6. The CX is Corsair's budget line and not quite as good as the XFX. The ( all ) XFX is ( are ) made by Seasonic and the Corsair is made by CWT. CWT makes some great units but in this case the XFX is a better choice in my opinion.
  7. Im Settling On The XFX, I've Been Worried It Won't Fit Or Something Like That XD
  8. Cases, power supplies and motherboards are all made to standards. You have a standard ATX case so any standard ATX power supply will fit it. So you will have no problems.
