Default Psu?

Quick simple question, my power supply has gone, need a new one, seen a few, can someone recommend a reliable / decent PSU (550w+) please?

50-60 inc VAT would be nice. Will be buying from Scan Computers UK: Computer Hardware - All or Laptops - Buy Cheap Laptops from our Laptops range at Ebuyer whichever is cheapest.

Thanks in advance.

KustomPCs.co.uk - Antec Basiq BP550 PSU

I am not affiliated with the store but love them as they are a real shop who have personal service so would reccomend them over the big businesses. That psu should be reliable and its modular which is a bonus for cable tidying as you don't have a huge amount of components.

or KustomPCs.co.uk - Antec Truepower Trio 550W

Or this one if you want something different:

Antec NeoPower 550W Modular PSU With 80mm Low Speed/noise Fan 18db - Ebuyer

Its not a very well known psu on these forums, but i have had it for years and its excellent -delivers 54Amps on the 12v rails, way more than the Corsair.

Antec.com - NeoPower 550 SpecSheet

max of 504W on the +12v rails, 504/12= 42 total amperes, only one more than the corsair 550vx. The 550vx is also single rail, unlike the Antec.

Fair enough, id forgot that about calculating the multiple rails.
