Hello,

My old OCZ 600w ModXstreme Pro has gone pop in my sons rig.

I need something cheap to replace it.

The system is a

Intel Core i5-6400 2.70GHz (Skylake) Socket LGA1151 Processor - Retail
Team Group Elite 8GB (2x4GB) DDR4 PC4-19200C16 2400MHz Dual Channel Kit - Black

Crucial BX200 240GB SSD SATA 6Gbps Solid State Drive
Powercolor Radeon R9 380 4096MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card (AXR9 380 4GBD5-PPD
Gigabyte H110M-S2H Intel H110 (Socket 1151) DDR4 Micro ATX Motherboard


The gfx card has 2 x 6 pin connectors, not sure it uses both ? but they was both plugged into the old PSU.

What would you recommend ?

You also said to replace a 600w psu but now youv changed the goal posts to a lower powered psu.

Sounds like you don't need out advice at all.

It will, but you know its a budget unit with budget components.

I thought a lower wattage would still be fine for what it is running ? The system is not, and never will be overclocked. And money is tight right now with it being Xmas.

Also what does Bronze and Gold mean ?
