CiT are a super awful cheapo PSU brand in the UK (CiT sounds like sh*t for a reason), they also turn out cheapo nasty cases (the kind with razor edges on the doors and cages).

It's a doorstop with cables stuck on. Get a quality brand like corsair, xfx, seasonic, antec, etc. If you want cheaper look at OCZ ZS series they are well reviewed and tend to land about £10 cheaper than some other brands.

Thanks, One more thing, If I were to get a CiT PSU (Which I doubt I will) What can it do to my system?

At worst it can go pop and damage other stuff, it could go pop and not damage anything but then you fork out for another PSU (so lose any saving on the cheaper unit). At best it wont deliver the power it claims too so you end up buying a (claimed) massive wattage PSU when you actually need a lower (actually delivered) wattage.

You haven't listed your hardware so I have no idea what wattage you need to recommend anything but here are some cheaper good options in order of wattage

AMD Phenom II x4 Processor 3.3GHZ|8GB RAM|500W PSU|Nvidia GT210 1GB|Hitachi 1TB HD I'm looking to get a new graphics card so I'm just trying to find a good PSU for it (either a gtx 560ti or a HD 7850)

Sorry bro I'm kind of a novice in the computer building world
November 1, 2012 5:38:58 PM

You could power that build with a reputable 450W though I would likely use a 550W
November 1, 2012 5:40:20 PM

Even after I upgrade to a higher end graphics card like the GTX 560ti or the HD 7850?
November 1, 2012 5:44:00 PM

Yes even with a 560ti a good quality 550W would be plenty.
