Default Which PSU? Tis a pickle...

Which PSU should I get to go with the parts in my sig? Bearing in mind it will be pretty heavily OCed for what it is... And i don't want to spend more than £30 really. Which kinda limits my options I know, but still, i'm running a tight budget.

Look on www.ebuyer.com www.scan.co.uk and overclockers.co.uk they have best prices. probably ebuyer is cheapest. And buy a known brand not a cheapo one.

If you add a second card then its likely to not work. SLi is tricky cos you have to get the exact same model cards with same speeds and everything. So you might be better off selling your 6800gs and getting a 7900GT. I dont think you will be able to find a PSU thats SLi compatible for less than £50 but if your not bothered i recommend this one. http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/98566

lol oh yeah it is. I never heard of the make of it though so it might not be very good. Its best to go with a well known brand like hiper or enermax ect.
