post #6441 of 6753
500W for a web browsing PC? I will tell you what, laptop works much better, less hassle, portable, uses less power and can web browse just like PC and you can connect all the peripherals you want to it as well. For parents or anyone who's not a computer nut a laptop is the most sensible option and they can be bought cheap instead of getting 1 decent 500W PSU and later finding that the whole system is dated and needs to be replaced anyway.
A bloody mobilephone most of the time has enough power for the kind of web browsing "normal" people do.

Decent 500W PSUs are the SF Leadex EVGA G2 550W Gold and Corsair RMx 550W Gold. They ain't the cheap kind and they should last. But I really think it's better to change the system to something more suitable.

Two 430W PSU had been dead with it, each with around 2 years time, so I guess the 960T cpu and onboard gpu can be too power hungry. Base on my experience desktop response is just better than laptop for some reason. Anyway I need to replace the PSU for that desktop.

Basic and cheap PSU is cheaper than getting a cheap laptop that will lockup constantly from a terrible HDD...

Not sure what is going on with PSUs right now, but I'm not seeing many of my go-to units... cheapest I'm seeing are two CX (500W and 600W) and the XFX XTS 550W at $70, $60 with MIR...

EDIT: 960T won't use anywhere near it's power draw with the onboard GPU holding it back. The entire system probably uses like 160W max. The reason why the CX's died on you is probably because some of the components inside are mediocre grade.

CX430 is definitely not durable. So I need suggestion for a cheap and durable PSU.

Who the hell gets anything with an HDD these days, and if one does just swap it for a 64-128GB cheap SSD... 5min work to swap it maybe not even that.

The EVGA 450B would be fine for such a system and its cheaper then the XFX TS Bronze most of the time
Just dont get the white 80 plus rated EVGA units those are not all that good

Its $25 after rebate and $40 without

Which again, means that it's not a cheap solution. Laptop + SDD is much more than a basic PSU.
