    Default Need Advice About PSU

    Greetings, I want to ask something regarding PSU.

    I am going to open a budget internet cafe in my neighbourhood and since i live in a third-world country the spec is kinda ancient, also some parts are used-conditions.

    The spec:
    Athlon X4 638
    HD 7730 2GB
    4GB DDR3
    320GB HDD
    DVDRW

    It's only for some medium activity like playing dota2, CSGO, mostly online gaming and normal use.

    And the only thing lacking is PSU, i've been thinking of buying either:
    - Aerocool VX Plus 350W
    - 1stPlayer Fire Dancing PS-250FD 400W
    - Powerlogic Voltron Pro 275X

    Those PSU prices are all under 25 usd.
    Yes, i know exactly cheap PSU is bad and all the risks.

    But i didn't really have any choice since i need to buy 15 unit psu for all the pc, as long as it didn't burn down the whole place i'm fine with it.

    So, which PSU i need to buy for under 25 usd?

    These are all power supplies where the manufacturer cared to much about the looks, but didn't cared about the inside. Can't you buy something that looks just basic, but is internally decent? For 25 dollars you should be able to get something decent.

    (too) Cheap PSU only cause trouble and issues, if you don't know what to look for...
    Might want to save a bit and look for a slightly better quality PSU (no, not Seasonic S12II Bronze up to 620W and variants therof)...

    Where are you looking btw??

    If i know a decent PSU with 25 usd i'll buy it immediately without second thought, no matter how it looks.
    But unfortunately i didn't, thats why i am trying to ask here hopefully someone know about it.

    Well, if it's for my personal use i'm definitely going to save some money for longer time but here i am trying to run a small business, and i'm already using my savings too.

    Currently i'm looking the psu in local online shop, and eBay as a last resort.

    And where is that? Because I can give you a PSU that you can buy here in The Netherlands, but I'm guessing you're quite far away.

    So when you order computer parts in Timor Leste, do they ship in from Indonesia or Australia?

    That's not really doable. Can't you link some stores with a online shop?

    Mostly i go to local shops, but their prices is kinda overpriced for me but the good thing is they have used parts in a good condition with cheap price.
    And if i have to buy a brand new parts i'm using indonesian e-commerce alot of them offering free shipping with price cheaper than here, i got a relative in indonesia so that helps a lot.

    Umm, they didn't really have personal online shop here, so most of time i used lazada/shopee/aliexpress which is famous in SEA and sort the location to my country, or using indonesian local e-commerce such as tokopedia/bukalapak.

    Edited:
    Those 3 PSU im asking i found it in enterkomputer.com/category/19/psu
    It was indonesian online shop with a lot of variety parts, by sorting the price to cheapest those 3 psu shows up.

    That's your first problem. Why do you want the cheapest PSU available?
