Default Budget PSU for office builds.

I'm going to building two office builds, 1x G4600 and 1x I3 8100 or upcoming Raven Ridge. I picked up Focus Plus 550w for my home PC, but I need a good budget PSU for these. I've read the reviews on CX and CXM both on sell at the moment. Modular or Non-Modular doesn't matter or different Brand is OK. Just something that's hopefully going to be trouble free.

Cooler Master MasterWatt MIJ 1200 would be a good option

just kidding. CXM and CX would be good choices.

I thought something may have got lost in translation from US English to Canadian English. Thanks for your opinion.

If you're buying normally without any sales I would say the Corsair VS400 is the best option as it's only $35 US without any special promos, discounts, etc.

Right now though, the Corsair CX450 can be had for $38 and also has the option for a $20 MIR card (prepaid Visa) but you have to buy it before tomorrow.

Unfortunately the low end market doesn't have many other great options at the moment as many other units have very short cables, poor overall build quality and component selection, or are just simply unproven / unknown designs.

I'm going to get a couple CX450, maybe Corsair won't give me trouble with the MIR. But if they do $6 is not going to break the Bank.

I've managed to get a corsair MIR done without even cutting the box/ mailing it, through email.
