Which PSU

Hi, im doing a build for someone and have around £50 to spend on the PSU; it has to power

Asus P5B

1 or 2gb ddr2 ram

Intel Core 2 Duo e4300 @ ~ 3Ghz (1.3V)

Leadtek 7800GTX 256mb / 8600GT

HDD

DVDRW

Sound card and other small misc stuff like a couple case fans, an after marked HSF etc..

The system with my Corsair PSU is pulling ~ 200W (0.8A) ( i know wattage isnt the only important thing)

So im between

CoolerMaster IGreen Power 430W/ 500W

Seasonic 430W

Silverstone SST400W

Enermax Coolergiant 380W (dont think so but if itll do..)

Enermax Noisetaker 370W

400W FSP Sparkle Blue storm

Currently between the Igreen, FSP or Seasonic

The iGreen looks like the best bet at that pricepoint, or maybe the Silverstone

Yeah the IGreen is a good unit and likely to be one of the quietest. If not the IGreen, maybe the FSP.

500w would be best. I think you're gonna be cutting it a bit fine with the 430w tbh.
