I have been looking to build a PC for a while now, and I have around an $800 budget. Does anyone know of a good PSU to keep around my budget, while also not blowing up my computer?

The new CXM PSUs from Corsair are pretty solid for their price.

None really unless you're willing to go a little over budget.

Drop the redundant cooler and put that towards your psu budget.

Faster ram is slighly cheaper too
