It pays to do your research and shop around
Don't forget Antec, their value range like the Neo Eco or True Power New series are pretty decent too.

@ 22$ the CX430 is the cheapest decent PSU available on newegg, and it suits your needs.
If it's safe to keep running your system with the current PSU.. well, here you go(you decide):

Guess I will be using my laptop for a while.

Guy asked for a solid psu. I recommended one based on my experience. Probably a bit more than he needs but not a bad choice and within his price range Not sure how that's bad advice.

As mentioned, the CX430 is the best value possible at this moment. There are power supplies that are initially cheaper which meet your system requirements, such as the low end Seasonics, but the CX430, with its rebate, provides more power, albeit with a minimally lower efficiency, at a cheaper price. It's your best bet. Your original Logisys wasn't likely even approaching 300W load, so even if its labeled wattage wasn't possible, you might've been escaping the out-of-spec load areas.

@bern43: A 650w is enough for a very nice system with dual GTX 460s. OP is running a single 4670.

Recommending a 650W PSU for a system that idles below 80W and hardly ever passes 250W at full load is extremely poor advice or simply trolling.. oversizing your PSU to the point you need to run Furmark and Prime95 simultaneously to reach 50% load is, simply put, stupid.
This would be an ideal pattern, your system should idle at around 20% load and should stay around 80% when at full load(hardcore gaming for example).

I was basing my recommendation on his current psu. Can't see system specs on tapatalk. 650 watts would be overkill.

Another recommendation is the Rosewill Green series. It's a bit more expensive but it is a very good unit.

Also the PSU has a 400w average power, can it really output 550w?

Thanks
The manufacturers minimum recommendation for your setup (which errs on the side of caution) is a PSU with at least 26A/400W.

A Corsair CX430v2 (rated at 28A/430W) would make for a perfect fit, most especially at $25 (after MIR).
