I built a computer (gtx 750 ti, athlon x4 845, atx case) about a week ago and I bought a cheap, used Raidmax 450-K (450w) power supply for $25. Recently the power in our apartment went out (while my computer was powered on) and back on shortly after. A few minutes later, I started smelling smoke from what I believe was the power supply and the PC wouldn't power on after that. I opened the power supply and some capacitors were completely worn out, bulging with crusty dried up fluid outside.
Now I'm looking to buy a new power supply (under $50 CAD) and need some good suggestions. Thanks for the help.
