Decent, Cheap PSU for Overclocking

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Need a good PSU as cheap as possible for overclocking, not SLI or anything like that just something that will run the stuff in my specs and allow me to do some good overclocking. Have about £35//$60 to spend, must deliver to UK if an american company. Thanks in advance!

Oh yeah, btw, I used the PSU calculator thing and it says i need a 478W power supply.

Really don't think you're going to get a good psu for overclocking for £35.
The Hiper Type Rs are good psus and are reasonably priced:

Bit more than what you wanted to spend though

if you can swing $85 then get a sunbeam nuuo 550w I wouldn't get anything less if you're planning on overclocking and a psu calculator says you need about 480w. I like to pad what the calculators say you need by quite a bit just to be safe.
