i would say the tesla 1 is only about 2 or 2 and a half months old but it did only cost about 15 pounds as i bought it off ebay..

That PSU is a generic one which is low quality so thats why it died. You should always buy branded PSUs from corsair,Seasonic,Antec,XFX,OCZ and so on.

You will have to buy a new PSU since its not worth fixing the old one and this time go for a branded one

Maybe this is the 1 i will get... 500W Corsair Builder Series CX CP-9020047-UK, 80 PLUS Bronze, SLI/CrossFire, EPS

yes the cx500 is a decent unit. If you want higher quality you could get a seasonic s12II 520 too.
