I know the VS series has got some flack, but it was the cheapest quality PSU that I could get new. It has plenty of power for this build, runs quiet and had connectors for everything I needed. The only problem I had with it was some rattling noise from the fan in the first couple of days, but it seems to have stopped, hopefully for good.
Loud fan, decent looks, enough connectors for budget builds.
Well-known brand, enough power for the GPU. Its non-modular but if you got some effort in managing the cables, it will be fine for any case.
Its a entry level power supply. Works good so far, but I'm planning to change to Corsair CX 550w or something.
A PSU that is well suited for middle spec rigs and cheap.
Very good budget PSU and it can handle slight OC. looks good and has enough power cables to go around and very lite.
A very capable PSU for mid power rigs. can also handle slightly OC CPU and its lite.
My power supply was a hard choice. I wanted something cheap, but not something cheap - if you know what I mean? Whilst I could have gone for something at £20, I also didn't want my computer bursting into flames, any of the components getting sick killed, or just power failures in general. Thats why I ended up going with Corsairs VS450. It's cheap, it's mostly reliable, and if anything goes wrong it has an actual warranty. For the first 2 weeks I had an issue with the fan making a horrific noise because it was hitting the metal edges of the PSU shroud. I whacked it pretty hard on the top and haven't had the issue since (and yes the fan still works!).
Excellent PSU for the money. Has a good CWT platform, is underrated as it is a 500W unit, and has no lacklustre components like the ill-fated CX430. The two PCI-E 6+2s are a welcome addition at this price range. Definite buy if you're into a low-end to mid-range build and not into overclocking except maybe bumping up the Mhz on the GPU.
I had to buy cable extension because the cables is quite short. I use my washer drain pipe to cover the cables.
