I'd like to be able to completely test my power supply (24-pin cable, CPU power cable, video card cable, molex, sata, floppy connectors), but I wasn't sure which tester to buy.

What would be the best power supply tester I could get for ~$30 (or less)?

What do you mean by "tester".

Regardless, the only "testing" equipment you can get for under $30 is a digital multimeter (DMM), which you can get a Walmart for like $10 to test the output voltage. Or a Kill-a-Watt power meter, they're like $25.

But you aren't going to be able to get a dedicated PSU testing thing for... Hell, I can't say since I don't know what you're trying to test.

$20 will get you a paper clip to jump start the PSU and a basic DMM that will be much more useful than those things.

I'd like to be able to test if all the components/cables of my PSU are functioning properly (proper output), or if there is some kind of problem somewhere with my PSU.
