Hello,

http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/forum2.php?config=tom...

The build in this thread is what I am currently working on, but the PSU that was recommended is now out of stock. Could anybody suggest a different PSU around the same budget (~$60)?

Thanks in advance.

chose from the following brands:

Corsair
Seasonic
PC power and cooling
XFX



oh. nvm.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

just buy that...

Edit 2:
If that is a XFX 550w Pro series, then buy that one. that's not bad either. and $20 cheaper (without having to deal with mail in rebates..)
