    Default Budget PSU solution for 1150 system

    Hello!
    Recently my PSU made a click sound and I confirmed that it is no longer working (Chieftec brand).
    I am searching for replacement, with future upgrade possibility.
    I think somethign like 400W-500W for around 50 bucks.

    Computer:
    i5 4440
    750GTX Ti
    SSD and HDD
    2 sticks of RAM and case fan.

    With that kind of budget, that's how you end up with another Chieftec.

    Cooler Master MWE Bronze V2 450W, Corsair CX450M, Corsair CX450, be quiet! Pure Power 11 400W, does should be around 50 euro.

    Was the i5 the first generation Haswell (coeval with the i7 4770k) or refresh Haswell (Devil's Canyon, coeval with i7 4790k)? If the CPU is the former, it is six years old. The latter is a seven-year-old machine. Is there a market for decent-quality used PSUs where you are? Otherwise what Jon said is true: "With that kind of budget, that's how you end up with another Chieftec."

    What do you think about CM MWE White (the v2 one)? In my location it's about 50USD. I'm also on a budget and other reputable PSU like CX and MWE Bronze is about 80USD here. My other choice is maybe a Corsair VS 550(grey)
