Hi guys! So i'm building this pc, and i want to put as psu, the EVGA 100-BR-0450-K1 450 Bronze, is cheap, and it is 80+ certified and i think is ok, in case that i will put a G4400, a gtx 950 (i know it will bottleneck), and 8 gigs of ram. So that psu should be enough for this sistem.







Oh, i have a very low budget, so if u want to recommend me any psus, the maxim budget is 40$. :/:??::D

I mean, as far as cheap PSUs go, it's far from the worst out there.
It's SuperFlower built, but built down to a price point.

If the CX450 or CX450M is available to you for similar money, I'd personally opt for it.... but the 450BT is a good margin better than most units in it's price class.

We've met again Barty! Thank you for the answer. Btw, is Evga 450BR, not BT, but i don't think matters that much. And yeah, i'll search for a cx450 and tell you if i could get that psu for that price.
Update: Yes, i found it for 42$!! Now, Idk what psu to buy, but i'll think later. Thanks!

We have? Sorry, I don't recall our last meeting....


Sorry about that, I searched the full model number & ended up with the BT unit (same SKU, just with BT in place of BR).

I haven't found any reliable information to confirm the OEM of the BR units, so I would probably avoid it.
The BT is decent, for what it is.
But the CX450 is the better option here.

Yeah, I went with the Corsair CX450M PSU. Thanks!
And yes, we've "met" before: http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/answers/id-3874207/gtx-1060-running-slow.html
