    PSU for going 64-bit

    Well I'm hoping to go 64-bit for Christmas, but for now need a new PSU as the one I have now looks nice but is cheap and nasty.

    I have £60 to spare (inc. delivery though), and want to use it for the system I have now, and for the new one I would like to get for the new year.

    Any suggestions?


    Thanks

    Yeah, you can see my current specs under the my system link, but keep in mind I've got a few neon fans, neon bars and such in the case.

    Both are almost exactly the same spec wise however the easycon has modular cables so you only need to plug in the ones you are using to save clutter

    So this is the one with easycon right? http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Produ...roductID=82572

    I can't seem to see anything on the page, and google images shows them both as having fixed cables.

    As said above the easycon is £5 more than your budget:

    edit:

    If you're not a serious overclocker but want a good psu I'd look at the Hiper ones above the Tagan on the Scan 460w - 499w list. They are good value solid psu's

    I don't do any overclocking, but I have overclocked the 9800 pro a few times, but everything is at stock atm.

    Will have a look at the Hiper one.
