    PSUs for £50.

    Best PSU for £50 max?

    Can anyone beat the Antec SmartBlue 350w from CPUCity?

    http://www.cpucitystore.co.uk/catalo...roducts_id=334

    Shall I go with that, or can I do better, for the price?

    450W CWT at Scan for £35 (rumoured to be the same psu as Antec)

    Enermax 350W at Scan £35

    Would you go with the Enermax over the Antec? Just as good a PSU, or to save £15?

    I would probably go with the CWT, but what do i know?
    Where's Austin et al when you want them?

    Fyi, I've got an Antec TrueBlue 480W in my main rig but that's over your budget.

    Just 1min away LOL! Antec and Enermax are easily the most widely regarded top brands for PSU although there are other great brands of course. Scan's P&P may hurt some of the price saving, will you be buying anything else?

    Yeah, a Razor Boomslang 2100, an IceMat Pro, and a GamePad. Saving a bit on every item, over where I was going to get them.

    Looks like I'll get that lot, and the £38 Enermax 350.

    Scan more expensive on the P&P then other places?

    I think most places tend to be charging more recently. If they put more on the P&P it makes the prices (seem?) lower. £7-10 is pretty common, esp watch out for ALL the places which quote you P&P exc VAT, so £5 P&P is usually £6 in reality. One good thing from a supplier's POV is stiffer P&P is more likely to get you to buy most if not all your products from tehm in one big order ... hence you may/will be less likely to place orders with multiple companies.
