We are amazed to discover that power supplies with fake wattages are still being sold in the United States and, of all places, at Newegg.com. We thought it was illegal to sell this kind of junk in America.

The Apevia Turbolink ATX-TL450W-BK is sold as a 450 W unit, but it can only deliver 240 W. Having a fake wattage is the smallest of its problems: it is a piece of junk that can damage your computer, since it provides noise/ripple levels above the maximum allowed, as it doesn’t have the required filtering coils in its secondary.

The cheapest I'd consider as acceptable on a really tight budget and for light/office/general use would be the Antec Basiq 350W. It's a lower end FSP (if I remember right), and it's unremarkable, but it should be more than acceptable in a light office type PC. I don't think there's anything seriously "wrong" with it (though I think the primary capacitors aren't stellar and might not be suitable for punishment, this shouldn't matter in office PCs where you won't be pushing it to rated capability?).

That's not counting rebates.

That aside, the Earthwatts 380 (depending on price) is often worth a look. The Corsair CX has good pricing too if rebates don't bother you (they do for me).
