PSU Recommendation

The fan in my aging HP Pavilion is getting loud at regular intervals and I think it's time to replace it. Could someone recommend a quiet and reliable 500w PSU compatible with my system and the new Radeon HD 7750 graphics card that I'll be installing at the same time, preferably not more than £40/50 . Also any advice on further upgrades, like adding more RAM if my processor would handle it, that might keep things running smoothly would be appreciated. Thanks for any help.

I would agree with Z1NONLY. The Neo is a good inexpensive PSU. I've used several in budget builds. No sense spending a fortune for an older system that doesn't need it.
