Thanks for the quick response! The PSU you recommended look good too! But its a little bit more expensive in the UK, goes for about £70 and thats a little over my budget:(  do you have any other cheaper recommendations? Thanks

Any PSU with an 80+ bronze rating and a single rail will do. Check Corsair, Seasonic, Thermaltake and Rosewill as well. I own the last one.
