    A lot of builders recommend the EVGA 500 B1. You may be able to get one for about $40. If not try the EVGA 500w or the EVGA 450 B1.

  2. Thanks a lot, what is your advice regarding Corsair CX 430 and VS 450 in comparision to EVGA B1 series..?

  3. Since your video card is a Geforce GT 1030 which only draws 30watts, any of these PSU's would have enough power for your needs. One difference between them is the number of connectors they have;

    Corsair CX 430 - 4 x SATA Connector - 3 x Four Pin Peripheral
    Corsair VS 450 - 4 x SATA Connector - 4 x Four Pin Peripheral
    EVGA 450 B1 - 6 x SATA Connector - 3 x Four Pin Peripheral
    EVGA 500 B1 - 6 x SATA Connector - 3 x Four Pin Peripheral

    "80 Plus Bronze" PSU's are a bit more efficient than plain "80 Plus". I'm not sure what the warranty periods are for each of these models but i'm guessing they are probably all 3 years. Corsair and EVGA are both well respected brands.
