Hi guys ths is my current nas build profile

http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/wnc3XL

What i wanted to know was this the best PSU i could get for this? i only have £40 for this at max, this was the other psus i looked at

http://www.scan.co.uk/products/430w-xfx-ts-80-plus-bronze-single-rail-1x120mm-fan-atx-psu

http://www.scan.co.uk/products/430w-evga-100-w1-0430-kr-80-plus-single-rail-1x120mm-fan-atx-psu

Any suggestions on other ones?

This draws so little power and small psu's are a rare

EDIT:- this case and psu is an option:- http://www.scan.co.uk/products/thermaltake-element-qi-mini-itx-quiet-case-black-with-220w-sfx-psu

** EDIT 2:- JUST FOUND THIS LIST, so was thinking the XFS would be the beter choice

Even though watts are so much higher??

Would i also be better going for like a cheaper case and getting better psu?

More watts won't hurt at all. Too few can, but the xfx are seasonic rebrand PSUs and seasonic is one of the best. It would be hard to find a decent quality psu with lower watts. If you did get a different case and psu what options are available to you? Can you link it?

I haven't really looked into any other options as i love the EVOLV

I did look at the Thermalake Element QI with 220w psu

Any case that would take 2 3.5 ssd and an itx board lol

this is probably the best psu in the price range: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/be-quiet-power-supply-bn222

the superflower golden green HX 350 watt should be good. cannot confirm if this 450 watt xfx pro is the old series (not great for today) or the new series (would blow the be quiet away for value).

Would the 300w not be better?? as it will be lower draw?

the pc will draw the same amount of power from any psu. the pc will draw the same amount of power from oyur wall outlet as both psus are rated for the same efficiency.

Is it that much better than the EVGA? I use EVGA at the moment and like it

The one pureblackfire suggested. The evga you linked to is not a good quality evga. If you had the gs or b2 version they are good evga. Tier 2, but still good.

The Be quiet is on the same tier as the EVGA??

the only difference i noticed straight away was the evga being single rail te Be Quiet being dual

what does that mean?
