    Since it is an old computer, I would like spending around 50

    Are you good with a soldering iron? would cost a lot less than 50

    I tend to replace all the secondary capacitors as I just don't want to have to fix things again, and only with top quality replacements.

    Does ATX Server count?

    Thing is that hardly anyone, except us, cares for 300W PSU.

    Wherever it applies it's quite sad :*( Thinking this'd be quite a respectable baseline: http://www.skytech.lt/fsp35050ahbc-f...-p-413146.html

    (Funnily enough, it's known that to the East from us, in Russia & CIS, the best selling budget FSPs are these going under the Q-dion, PNR, PNR-I (oh God no) and PNR-Q series. They're all cheap and ranging from relatively cheerful to really meh. Nothing fancier than good old group reg and Capxon treatment anyway The thing is, some models, either more basic ones or higher current ones, sometimes have trouble staying woke at rated load (they just shut down) if the numerous reviews are to be believed. It'd be hilarious to learn that a 550-Watt PNR is a twin of the 350-Watt European FSP or something if that were true of course)

    Finally I purchased the Corsair VS450, and now the computer works flawlessly.

    Thanks to everybody for the help.
