That's equally as bad, if not worse, than using your unbranded 720 watt...

If you look through the for sale section of this forum, you can get yourself a nice deal on a used unit.

If you are looking at a new unit with the same wattage rating as yours, it may cost between $80 and $110.

For your current system, you really do not need anything with that high of a wattage rating, in which case I would suggest what someone above already mentioned...the Corsair CX430. I've used one in a client build I've done a little while ago and they are quite solid units.

Looking on ebay (That poor!) for strictly Corsair and OCZ
Fingers crossed on a bargain
Thanks for your help guys!
This one will work well for you. I have a 780w OCZ and it has served me very well. It isn't "enthusiast" level, but I don't think you need that. And for $40, you can't go wrong.

I read somewhere that dell psus are actually one of the few things that aren't garbage that they produce. I have a 380w dell psu that has been running a family computer with a pentium d and 8800 gt for years.

Thanks for the suggestions guys, I'm brittish so finding stuff on the for sale is slightly more difficult. But yeah the dell won't solve it cause it doesn't have a six pin for my graphics, so i do need a new one.

Try looking for more brands, why only Corsair and OCZ? Just because some guy said so?
There are many more good brands: Thermaltake, Enermax, Seasonic etc.
Look for reviews on the net and read.

I have actually been personally pondering this before. I was wondering if the prebuilt PC manufacturers actually put halfway decent (if not quality) power supplies in their systems to reduce the chances of a system PSU failure (to save warranty expenses). Not only that but a PSU is probably the component that is most subjective to random failure correct? So it would not hurt Dell/HP/etc to put in a quality PSU.

In addition...how many times has a friend told you their "computer broke?" Most of the time it's PEBKAC error and rarely is it ever a PSU-related failure...
