How Much Are You Willing To Pay For A PSU (Maximum Price)

Also, For A PSU. Try To Aim For 80+ Gold Rating, Or Titanium Rating.

Though Bronze Ratings Are Cheaper, They Draw Power From The Wall A Lot Less Effectively. Thus Making The Electric Bills Cost More In The Long-Run.

Not more than £40, so I wont be able to get Gold rating or Titanium rating probably. Tight budget here!

Not entirely true. You would save up a total of maybe $10 a year at most depending on how much you use your computer.

If You're Willing To Pay £5 More, This Should Work Fine. If Not, Your Current PSU Is Fine.
