    Psu <£30

    Friend just had his PSU start to make lots of bad whirring sounds. I'm guessing it needs replacing.

    Needs 20 pin and 4 pin connectors for motherboard and the rest standard 4 pin (not SATA power) power connectors. About 4 minimal I think.

    £30 budget. What's a good choice for him?

    Thanks

    I would look at this Silverpower 400w PSU:

    Silverpower and Tagan are owned by the same company.

    Re: Psu <£30

    Begging everyone's pardon for sounding like a broken record, how about the Antec Basiq 350W. Has 4 molex connectors, 1 SATA, 1 FDD, 20+4 pin main connector and a 4pin ATX 12v.

    EDIT: to give my comment some balance, you could also go for this BeQuiet 350W, but it only has 3 Molex (does have 4 SATA though, for future expansion )

    He doesn't care about future expansion, this is just to tide him over a few months until he bullies/persuades his parents to get him a new one

    I'll link him to the thread and he can decide

    I would second this suggestion i know its out of stock now but i have had a few of these and they seem to work flawlessly i think the oldest is 1c one and must be coming up for 3 years service
    1 1/2 years in a 24/7 pc

    Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

    Re: Psu <£30

    Depends on what this is all powering but a 20pin and 4pinmother board and just molex, I'm guessing a p4 socket478 and 6series graphics card, or amd / ati of round the same time
    any half decent 350w will be fine.
    the Be quite or silverpower would be a good choise
