YAY! A UK person that I can recomend a great PSU to!

Anyway, the Hiper Type R 580watt is the best PSU you can get with out spending loads on the PC power & cooling ones. If you look around on their forums, nearly everyone has it, and no one has had a problem (including me.)

It is out of stock, so you would have to get it from somewhere else. I got mine from www.gladiatorcomputers.co.uk

Edit: just to give you a bit of confidence, the americans have to pay alot for that PSU. http://www.frozencpu.com/scan/se=Pow...nu_search.html

The OCZ was the one I was shacking my fist at when I was saying about companies putting the prices at $1=£1.
