More about what demanding decent inexpensiv
  1. The Corsair Builder Series CX500 is a rather popular PSU that should perform well in your system IMO
  2. I've used this PSU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139027 in a recent project (no overclocking like you plan for your own) and it still runs strong to this day. It has 2 8-pin connectors that have detachable sections to convert into 6-pin PCI express connectors. It was cheap then but Newegg has since reduced it to $60 apparently.

    EDIT: Some of the reviews mention a coil whine issue but I have yet to hear it.
  3. whats ur budget and country of or1gin

    Denmark :) I'm considering the Corsair as suggested above.. I just gotta look for it in my own country or in Amazon..

    Anything you would suggest I should consider ?

    It sounds great and perfect, but I´m having trouble looking for it in Amazon.. Can you help me :) PLEASE hehe..

    I'm affraid of making a purchase of a PSU that's MODULAR!

    Thanks again mate for pointing me in the right direction!!
  7. The CX500 is good. The better ones would be the Corsair TX650, Seasonic S12II 520/620 or M12II 520/620, XFX Pro Series 550W, Antec High Current Gamer 620.
  8. aight cx500 it is!

    This model (CX500) is not a modular PSU design. Here ya go: http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Builder-Series-Watt-CX500/dp/B0092ML0MY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1360514557&sr=8-1&keywords=cx500
