    Default 450B worth it? What parts can it handle?

    I wanted to buy a higher-end PSU but I don't have the money, I want to upgrade other parts of the computer yet and I was offered this power supply for $300 pesos (That's 1/3 of the price new here in mexico) and about the price of a generic unit

    Do you think it is worth the money? It's a used one. What do you think of used budget units like this? Will it provide a decent upgrade path? At least while I upgrade to a better one. What's the max config I can put on it? For now I wanted to overclock my GTX 950 (I have an i3 4160 and 8GB of DDR3 paired with an H81 board and some other cheap stuff like only 1 HDD and DVD)

    This is a group regulated unit IIRC. Do you think group regulated is convenient these days?

    I've seen worse for $300 mxn

    but If you want a serious PSU upgrade you should get more PS_U than that

    It's not a very good PSU AND it's used.

    If it was at least a used good unit for 1/3 the price, sure.
