The Fan is currently going out in my power supply. Rattling. I need to replace it but have very little knowledge about the power supply aspect of computers. So I thought I would register on here and seek help. The motherboard in my computer is GIGABYTE GA-970A-DS3P FX (rev. 2.1) AM3+/AM3 AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 ATX AMD Motherboard . Currently has a fx-6300 rx 560 and 8gb ram in it. 2 case fans as well. The pc is a cyberpowerpc bestbuy GUA1400BST .

I only have a 100$ budget, cant go over that including tax, so I was hoping you guys could recommend me one that fit this price point. Preferably from a online retailer that ships. Also the most powerful one at that price point as well. I do want it to be at least bronze and preferably not a referb. Hope you guys can help. Thanks in advance. PS (the reason i am asking is cause im unsure if I need a atx or atx12v or what.

Thanks, Ill check that one out for sure. Was really having a hard time figuring out what to replace it with.

EDIT: reason for more power was for future GFX card upgrade.

Not sure why you want the most power. Your system would do fine with less:

But there's no harm in going with a more powerful unit like the one WildCard999 lists.

I figured for the extra $5 it was worth it plus if they do a platform upgrade as well as GPU upgrade and overclocking they'll still have plenty of power.
