Best under £ 100 PSU for set up?

While working on my rig I managed to ruin my most overlooked part, my PSU. This build started from a premade system, a Vibox sniper ( not a sniper 10, just a sniper ) that I brought a few years ago. Now I'm completely stumped as to what I need to replace the PSU with.

My rig;

Gigabyte ga-78lmt-usb3

AMD FX-6350 4.2GHz Six Core CPU

Palit nvidia geforce 770 jetstream (4gb)

Zalman LQ315 Ultimate Liquid CPU Cooler

My previous PSU was a Xigmatek NRP-VC603, which worked fine. What would be the best part for this set up? Should I get another of the same or is there a better PSU for under £100?

Also, any tips on what part to upgrade next or anything I should do for my rig? Advice is always welcome!

EVGA g2 is a good pick for you guys, top quality and gold rated with modular cables, 75 quid from amazon - http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-power-supply-220g20650y1

That part seems a too big to fit into my case, do you know of an equivalent that matches these size requirements? 150mm(L) x 150mm(W) x 86mm(H)

or would it be better for me to get a different case that will fit the bigger PSU?

Huh, that's... a little strange, atx psus generally have the same kinda screw hole pattern even if some do extend a little further into the case.

It might still fit depending on the case i guess, what is it/link?

I'm just going off of what the amazon listing has for the size (28.6 x 22.6 x 12.2 cm), but that's way to big for my case.

My case is a Vibox case, this one http://www.amazon.co.uk/Predator-Desktop-Computer-Chassis-Temperature/dp/B00CRETKFS?th=1&psc=1

Ah, ok it does appear that amazon.Co.uk has the size incorrect. I should have looked at more than one site for information, my bad.

With the size it actually is it should definitely fit into my case, hopefully with it I can get my rig up and running ASAP.

Thanks very muchly!

I just measured my case. If the size listed on the amazon page is correct then the part is waaaayyyy too big for my case, which is one of these http://www.amazon.co.uk/Predator-Desktop-Computer-Chassis-Temperature/dp/B00CRETKFS?th=1&psc=1

There is no reason it shouldn't fit, considering its an ATX case
