Corsair HX520W or HX620W depending on budget.

It will run your computer, but with little room for expansion. I would say go for at least a 600W if you plan on upgrading anything later.

These are not the highest quality but may be in your price range.

I would not suggest slacking on a power supply, try to save the extra money and get a nice one that you could actually use one a system 2-4 years from now.

Those are poor choices (budget wise) unless you need the modular design.

Poor choices?

I think you'll actually get 90% of OCN telling you to ****. They are some of the best performancerice PSU's on the market and he can not go wrong with one.

Poor show sir.

I hedged my comment and for good reason. Those are great PSUs performance-wise. However, for the same price as the 520hx, you can get the 750TX. Thus, not good choices budget-wise. His budget should be apparent by the fact that the original PSU was ~30 after rebate.

Well, the argument is thus down to whether he wants modular or not. I assume he did, as most people do, since captive cables are nothing but a pain in the ass and he really doesn't need 750w.

Yeah the 430W Thermaltake is more like a 300W, good thing you canceled it. On a budget, get this Antec: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817371006. This OCZ is also a good PSU after rebate: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817341012. A budget PSU without rebates would be this Cooler Master: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817171028. It is a step down in quality from the Antec and OCZ, but still decent for a budget rig. None of those PSUs will leave a lot of room for future upgrades but will power your rig just fine. For a step up in quality, the Corsair vx450 is the way to go: http://www.buy.com/prod/corsair-vx-4...205466485.html. For some future proofing, you can't beat the performance and price of the Corsair vx550: http://www.buy.com/prod/corsair-vx-5...205852646.html. Which oddly, is the same price as the Corsair tx650 with rebates: http://www.buy.com/prod/corsair-tx-6...206178324.html.
