    I have to replace the PSU in my media centre as I managed to melt the old one. It currently has some rubbish oem 250w in there which is causing crashes due to poor electric supply.

    Baring in mind that my media centre is running the following and has modest power requirments:

    Sempron 2600+ (socket 754, stock [email protected])
    Asus NF3 mobo
    Nvidia 6200 AGP
    Maxtor 250Gb SATA HD
    2xBlack gold TV cards
    DVD-ROM drive

    Can anyone recommend a low power (say 350w ish), quiet and most of all cheap power supply for this machine?

    Do you have a budget? Id reccomend the FSP Sparkle FSP400-60 Blue Storm 400W ATX2.0 PSU or if you got more money, then Seasonic S12 430W Silent ATX2.0 Power Supply.
