my psu started making clicking noises then my pc used to turn off after 5 minutes of gaming, it was a crappy alpine 700w on a budget build so i put my old 305w in for now. i need a psu for around £45 i buy from ebay so im looking for a good one. ive seen a cx500 for £43 and i plan to run a bigger card than my 6850 in the future (perhaps a 7970 or a 680)

could i run those cards on a cx500?
please send me links to good psus within £45 :)

Those cards should be able to run on that PSU.

What are the rest of your specs?

2 hdds (750gb,250gb)
M5A78L-M LX V2 mobo
and a standard dvd drive

will the cx500 be able to do crossfire if i decide to crossfire in the future?

It probably wouldn't handle crossfire, you would need a PSU that can supply a good amount of watts (around 550W and over).
