Looking for a new power supply for my rig. Long story short, due to where I live, I can pretty much only order PC components from eBay. I've checked all my local stores and websites but they only sell the really shitty stuff (Chieftecs, MS Platinum, etc.) I managed to find 2 listings that seem good, but I was hoping to get an opinion from the community. My budget is max 80 euros (eBay also has a 10% discount code at the moment).

A Corsair CX550 (open box condition):


An EVGA 500 Bronze (new condition):

What are your local stores and websites? It's always hard to help when we're missing a lot of the key information that would result in the best possible advice.

Of these two, the Corsair is much better, but for 80 Euros in Germany, you ought to be doing better than a possibly used Corsair CX for which you'll have increased difficulty getting warranty service.

I don't live in Germany, but rather Montenegro. Here's some links to the sites/shops near me, see for yourself: https://www.gigatron.rs/napajanja, https://www.multicom.me/racunari-i-oprema/napajanje/svi.html, https://datika.me/category/racunari-oprema/napajanja/, http://click.co.me/katalog/search?option=com_virtuemart&search=true&view=category&mcf_id=104&cids[]=5168477&sc=1&mids[]=&d=1&mcur=1&pl=&pr=&custom_parent_id=7&limitstart=0&limit=10

Ah, I assumed from the German language sale and the shipping that you were in Germany (which is why I asked). You are correct, though, your local options are absolutely brutal. If you can't do better than a Corsair CX for 80, then it'll work just fine.

Go for EVGA G1 model.My friend is a miner and never had any issues with that model.
Corsair HXi series is good too,but I think it's kinda expensive for you.
Just go for G1,you won't be dissapointed.
