I have no clue where you're from, but I'm going to assume it's the US, and suggest a power supply or two from Newegg:

Either:
Antec Neo Eco 400C. This on the basis that it's an Antec, but I can find no review for it.

Kingwin ABT-450MM. This one on the basis of This review. Note the postage, so if you can, I'd suggest you find somewhere cheaper for it.

Antec have some other low-wattage units I'd recommend, but my advice is to stay away from the Basiq series. Everything else they make is really very godo.

I would go with the Antec personally, considering its only $35 with free shipping after the rebate.

get the Huntkey X7 900W or Rocketfish RF-900WPS( cheaper in ebay)

They both are very good units.

Im actualy from Australia, Thanks anyway.

Im actualy looking at this PSU (http://www.centrecom.com.au/catalog/...ducts_id=46687)


Its because the Shops just out from where i live, so i dont have to pay postage (Postage ruins online buying in Australia).
So its a budget PSU that i could probably use for now untill i decide to go and get an XFX 750w Black edition i think their called. So any objections on the PSU im looking at, Go ahead.

The Antec Basiq 500W is decent but it's not really a 500W unit. It can only deliver 348W at 12V. It'll work for both your current system with the 9400GT and the planned upgrade to a GTX 460, but I wouldn't do any overclocking or benching on that PSU.
Consider this unit instead: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?...ducts_id=13454

Edit: didn't see that you'd rather use a local shop -- it's up to you. Like I said the one you linked to should work alright, it's a decent unit.

Thanks, But if thats a decent unit then it will be ok i guess, I Wont be doing any overclocking since i have a stock cooler on my CPU, And im just getting a budget PSU untill i gather some money for a larger one.

Just a question, How do you figure its 348w on the 12v?


EDIT: I rang up centrecom and they said they had none in stock, They do however have some silverstone 500w PSU's in stock, I dont know the name of them but its gonna cost $75, Depending on what you guys say, Ill probably be buying that..

I think for the price the Huntkey X7 900 is excellent plus you wont have to spend again for a PSU.
