I've been trying to find out how what size PSU would be suitable for my PC. The PC itself isn't amazing and I don't want to spend a fortune on a PSU aside from paying for quality.

There a many PSU calculators on the internet but they all vary greatly, I've had results ranging from 273w to 403w. Could anyone recommend an accurate one?

With those particular wattages in mind I'm looking at the Corsair 400W CX Series PSU as it seems to be affordable quality.

As I said the PC isn't amazing:
Mobo: Biostar GF8100-M2+ SE
CPU: AMD dual core 5000+
2x 1GB DDR2 RAM
onboard NVIDIA GeForce 8100/ onboard sound/LAN etc..
no pci/ pci-e cards and just a couple of generic 120mm fans...

There's one in the sticky. https://www.techsupportforum.com/f210...on-192217.html

And the Corsair will do fine with onboard graphics.
