Need new Power supply

I bought a Corsair CX500 for my build, and under a heavy load during benchmarking, the PSU overloaded.

Anybody know a good replacement, i'm going for a 600 watt and over PSU now. no more 500W for me :/

perferrably around 79.99

Specs:
FX-8320
radeon HD 7850
WD Velociraptor 500Gb
ASUS M5A97 R2.0
Lite-on DVD burner
CM Storm Enforcer

  3. XFX Core series - 650 or 750 watt - your choice!
  4. Hi :)

    ANY decent make 500 will do...

    I would be more worried about WHY your previous one blew (and its NOT because its a 500)

    All the best Brett :)
  5. There's a Reason i RMa'd it for full refund, lol.

    Trust me, its worth going somewhere else or waiting for stock, I have the 850W and I have never looked back. Good clean power in a tidy unit.
  9. How much are you willing to spend? I would go for a Seasonic X series if you want stable and reliable.
