Which psu for £50-70

Basically my 480watt tagan went bang with a huge flash, took out the breaker & caught fire inside (lots of smoke)

So I'm looking for a new psu as my spare 525w hiper doesn't have the 8pin EPS connector for the mobo

I've been looking at the reviews on here and at first was going to get the "Silverstone Zeus 850w ST85ZF Quad SLI PSU" for £66

The only downside was that it doesn't have the 8pin pcie and also it only has a 80mm fan

I notice a lot of people rate the corsair psu's as they use good components (105˚C caps etc) so I thought maybe get a Corsair VX550W as I've read it's actually the same as their 650W PSU internally.

Silverstone Zeus 850w ST85ZF - £66

Corsair 550W VX - £70

OCZ StealthXStream 700w - £64



Not sure which to get

The silverstone has quad rails, ocz dual rails and corsair single rail

This.

Completely ignore the picture, the seller is a bloody retard. What you actually get is an 80+ 1000w Delta PSU (of server fame).

If you don't want to spend that much try this one. Again ignore the pic, I have bought three of these now. 80+ certified Delta 750w.

Go and wash your mouth out with soap !!

Those PSUs are pre Dell. They were originally ordered by Alienware and are listed on the 80+ site.

I've bought three for £25 a pop. Go on, tell me where you can get an 80+ cert PSU for £25?

I've also had three chassis from them at £50 a pop. Infact no, the first one had a scratch so full refund and the second I only paid for one.. Daft sods ! bus stop Alienware chassis. You wait for one and two come at once

I rate Dell about as highly as I rate governments, politicians and banks. Best not to even go down that road

A Dellienware? I don't like toy computers. FFS, micro ATX only? what kind of bloody gaming rig is that And motorised vents that give you a whopping zero degree difference?
