if you are willing to order from amazon here is better memory for the same price. i'm not familiar with any of the cheaper psu's on the scan.co.uk website. without searching for reviews for every model there is a corsair for £30 but i'm guessing that's too much. you could try using the 500 watt included with the case but i would assume its the lowest quality psu available.

thanks for the help, the reviews for the case with the psu seem to look good so i will probably just go for that to be honest.

would really appreciate some more help on the motherboard case and psu, I am pretty certain on the apu.


Thanks
