Suggestions on 400W - 500W PSU.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I just got a radeon 5670 card and found out my 300W can run it but it crashes at full load, example: video tests or settings to high.

So if anyone could recommend a cheap and reliable PSU for around $30.
Thanks

hmm, yea that seems good.
I was looking at the other 400W - 500W PSUs on newegg and the cheaper ones that cost bout $20 seemed kinda cheap, most the cons were like shorting out or died after few months... so I thats why I thought I'd ask on here.

but this one doesn't have to many 1 eggs so I might go for it.
or just go ahead and spend $50+ for one a friend recommended

Excluding rebates or limited-time special offers, you can't get a good PSU for $30. Expect to pay at least $40, always. The Corsair CX 430 V2 mentioned earlier is your best bet currently.
