Would This PSU Power all my components

Hello, could i ask if this PSU would have the correct connection points or rails ( i dont know the correct term ) I am also plugging an nvidea geforce gtx550ti into my pci slot
and also having an SB Audigy plugged in. I am going to run a Intel i3.Would i have a connection for my CPU Fan?

If you would need anymore information about my set up please feel free to ask

It's got the right connectors.

But it's a poor choice.

It may work. For how long, who knows.

You aren't going to get anything worth having for 15.68 pounds.

This is a quote from a review oc the PSU you are considering;



"At 50 per cent load the PSU's rails were all within the ATX specification. However, at 75 per cent it managed just 4.62V on the 5V rail, which is outside the ATX specification, and at 100 per cent load it shut down straight away.
Casecom's ATX 500W is cheap and quiet, but it manages only 50 per cent of its claimed power output before its voltages wander."


You are taking a great risk to your entire system by using this PSU.


Take the above poster's suggestion and find another

Go with this instead,this is less likely to die on you and power your setup a lot better then that other brand psu. I have one of these but a 600w version. Found it on that site your provided.Remember never go cheap on the power supply,it should be your biggest concern and priority when shopping for pc parts when building,the power supply dies or goes bad then its most likely to take other components with it if it's a poorly built psu..

You will not get a decent PSU for under 25. Never scrimp on PSU if it fails it can wreck your whole system.

Here are the least expensive PSUs at Ebuyer that I would buy:

XFX 450W Core Edition Pro PSU | Ebuyer.com
XFX Core Edition, 450 watt; 37.29


Antec 400W High Current Gamer PSU | Ebuyer.com
Antec High Current Gamer 400 watts; 45.15; this is 40.00 at Overclockers.co.uk

I didn't see anything else that is fairly cheap at Overclockers that I would get.

I took a quick look at Amazon and saw nothing under 50.00 I would buy there.

I'd get the XFX from ebuyer.

If you have another seller, post the link.

pedroc1999,
The PSU is a core component and not a good area to skimp. Please look to Seasonic as a quality value option.
