The CX430 will do the trick..this thing is not going to draw much power at all. Use this resource to look at quality power supplies and find the cheapest one you can on the list as your system is very very light.

I don't know anything about the quality of NorthQ power supplies except that it is not on our recommended list anywhere so I will leave that to someone else.

If you do decide to upgrade/change your PSU, just make sure to choose a recommended one that you can find in your country at a decent price!

always go from the recommended list unless you want to go through the trouble of reading the myriad reviews for the myriad power supplies, i, myself, wouldn't know how to even read one of those reviews to tell whether it was good, the review was good, or what

Northq was the first psu brand to put a USB port for data transfer into the psu. You should take a look.
I own this one: http://www.northq.com/products/power...200GP-USB.html

They were manufactured in Denmark.
They've stopped producing internal psu's, they only produce external psu's nowadays.


If you do decide to upgrade/change your PSU, just make sure to choose a recommended one that you can find in your country at a decent price!

I will keep that in mind, and thanks for the help... Its just that psu's here in Denmark cost a fortune, which limits the choices budget wise.
