Default Recommend me a low powered PSU?

Looking for something low powered. Pretty sure 250w will work for me. Using integrated graphics. Building a home server.

^^ that one is good.

Here are some others. IMO, its generally a good idea to spend at least 50 USD for a psu no matter how low end the other hardware parts are.

Newegg.com - FSP Group FSP400-60GLN(80) 400W ATX12V Ver.2.2 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Power Supplies

Newegg.com - Antec EarthWatts Green EA-380D Green 380W Continuous power ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Power Supplies

Newegg.com - SILVERSTONE ST400 400W ATX 12V 2.2 Power Supply - Power Supplies

Newegg.com - FSP Group SAGA+ 450R 450W ATX12V Power Supply - Power Supplies

Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-400CX 400W ATX12V V2.2 80 PLUS Certified Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply - Power Supplies


the corsair and silverstone are top notch.

I had been looking at that one, hearing good things about FSP, but was skeptical about the price. Reassuring to see someone else mention it. Reviews seem pretty good, too.
