Well, there is truely only one PSU that I would recommend to you.
Well, there are two. And this company will ship to the UK. If you want quiet and 400+ watts then this is the PSU for you. You also said best bang for your buck... You'll get a heck of a bang outta this PSU. As far as looks nice??? Don't worry about the looks of a PSU. If you buy a pretty PSU and it dies, you now have a pretty paper weight...

Well, whoever told you that is a complete a uder idiot. They have no idea what they are talking about. Do you believe everything you are told? Why are they horrid? Back up your statements with a little fact? I'd love to hear this...

PCP&P uses only the best internal components in their PSU's. They are solid as a rock during the heaviest loads. Also, they back their products with a 5 Year warranty.

Ask anyone in this forum, they'll tell you that PCP&P is the best PSU you can buy, though expensive, you get what you pay for.

Kadahaf: You recommended a thermaltake $39.00 PSU? Boy, i'd listen to your recommendations in the future...

Oh my gosh, PCP&P and OCZ are a couple of the best PSU manufacturers along with Antec and Thermaltake.

Quick question, i have no idea if my mobo is 24 pin or 20 pin. Im guessing its probably not the better one as i have a socket 748 cpu on a S**T motherboard

As the Antec Neo power comes with one of those 24-20 pin converters, am iright in saying theres not going to be any compatability issues?
