Default cheap 2x6pin 500w atx psu?

Hey, I got a sapphire r9 270, the minimum PSU wattage is 500w. It needs two 6 pin cables but I need to find a good cheap PSU for it, preferably below £45, the cheaper, the better. Any good PSU's because I only found one on eBay but was too expensive because it was 850w.

If "cheaper the better" is your goal:

Oh, I thought 6+2 pin meant 8 pin
Thanks!

Well it does, but "6+2" means it has a detachable 2 pin segment to make it into either a 6pin or an 8pin.

Somewhere between "okay" and "pretty well", depending on the other specs of the system.

Medium settings ish. A 270 isn't that great.

It would be nice if some one came up with an auxiliary power supply just for your vid cards. You could upgrade your card(s) and just add a 50 dollar power box instead of having to replace the whole PSU. You could run the mains wire in through the water tube openings in the case.

Well...you could already do that by purchasing another PSU and shorting the main 24pin connector to get it to run w/out a motherboard.
