Post Faulty PSU, new needed

So a few days ago my suspected bad PSU had a meltdown (or whatever), blew the house fuse and keeps doing so.
Sadly I can't test my parts (other then my ram wich gives constant beep (ram fail)) unless it is absolutely needed.
So these are my specs:


AMD radeon R7 260 series

Ballistix sport vlp (what it says on the ram stick, cant find the real name) 8 gigs of RAM

Sata 64 mb cache 1 TB hdd

MSI A-78M-E35


And then there's the faulty PSU: Corsair CX 430

So I don't want the CX series, but what new PSU do u recommend?

Wait, I just read the last couple of posts about the dry ice. Dude you probably fried the whole system by now.

It worked for months after the dry ice ;D

But the warranty probably isn't a thing

Your probably right, but I still need a new one, but I'll probably start looking myself soon

Not going to get much help with that attitude

Basically this, and we could say you're equally as lazy because I have recommended brands in my little article.

Seasonic, Corsair, eVGA are the top 3 I'd buy from. The eVGA 500b and 600b models are cheap and solid, as is the right wattage CX models or you could get a real good quality unit like the M1211 520W from Seasonic.
