    Seasonic S12-500 a seriously good and stable PSU for only £75 here:

    Or the Seasonic S12-600. The PSU is one of the most important building blocks of your system, and contribtes not insignificantly to stability and OC potential - don't skimp on it - it should last through several CPU/MainBoard upgrades.
    Try to make each and every day the best it can be.
