A good cheap psu for repair purposes

Hey guys

Im after a good cheap psu which i can get a couple of for cheap as a standby when I have to replace customer's psus. Ya know, just like 400w better than oem/generic crap.

Something I can rely on for helping me diagnose stuff too

This should be fine: http://www.amazon.co.uk/OCZ-500W-Ste...8730982&sr=1-2

Also heres a review of the 600w model from there won't be much difference between this and the 500w model I have linked to

http://www.overclock3d.net/reviews.p...600_watt_psu/1

Let me kno if this is out of budget?

Wish I could help but I've been on a bit of an unintentional PSU killing spree recently and managed to zap 4 units in the space of 2 weeks.

Something like these are solid units.

U gotta keep an eye on what connections u want on them tho.

This model for example has a 4 pin 12v connector and 2x 6 pin pcie. Whether u'd want to have 8pin 12v connectors and 2x 6+2 pin pcie will ofc rocket the price.

rast's suggestion looks ok but a tiny bit more than what i was hoping to spend

as to what i want:

something to have on hand and be able to trust when repairing/diagnosing faults (eg. if this psu solves the problem and the problem exists with "broken" psu then it needs to be replaced)

simply, as cheap as possible but not going to pop in two years time
