    Once I get my intel working more proper I’m going to put it back in my elite 110 and set up a system to sell on, but I want to retain my 1050ti and I’m debating whether I should retain my power supply again and fit my 300w psu in or try to get maximum price selling it as without the 1050, the psu be the main appealing aspect next to the case, but I’m worried I might pass up on a good unit for awhile to get a higher sale unless I know I can better it.

    I say £60 or less because while this one was new and sealed it cost £40, so just under half what it goes for new and so I’m going to assume I could get lucky again, but with a better unit.

    No. Nearest would be the Bitfenix Formula 550w at £67 and personally I wouldn't touch a single 500w+ unit on here that costs less.

    thanks for reply. i figured as much, but models have changed and been added to the market since i got my evga which is going on nearly a year now i think. so wasnt sure. mean i would get the seasonic focus plus 550w if we was talking a new buy, id just hate to sell what i got and end up with a meh replacement because i didnt get enough sale price, i dont even need 500w, but i suppose the closest under 500w be that sf450.

    Closest to it under 500w would be the Bitfenix Formula 450w. I reckon the Bitfenix Formula series are better than the EVGA GS series actually but the downside is that they are not modular.

    ah yeah good shout, i forgot about that one and it being atx also and to be honest now i own a fully modular, regardless of the cables being thinner, i havent found them any different cable management wise, ive done the best i can in my elite 110, but still looks a mess, do wish i chose a dual chamber itx case of similar size, i think i agree with reviewers that semi modular be ideal in these sort of cases.

    There's an EVGA 600W 80+ for around £30 on the web.

    That's a big downgrade in quality.

    Best deal at the moment is the EVGA 750w P2 for £85, you just need to go looking for it on the web, think big river!
