    XFX 550 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...&Tpk=xfx%20550 70 bucks.
    Thermaltake 430 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817153150 50 bucks and 30 bucks after Rebates.

    I would personal take the XFX because I have used it before in builds and it hasn't let me down so far. But the other one is decent have used it in one build and its been fine for now exp with the 7770.

    If you can swing the 5 euros, get that one.

    Since she has a 7770 with a I3 you could for sure use this one http://www.alientech.pt/product_info...ducts_id=18963 for 50 €

    Corsair CX430.

    Not modular, but a very well respected brand.

    Respected brand, but not a respected product line. The "builder" CX series is a blemish on Corsair's otherwise good record.

    Agree, if you really want to go for the CX, the v2 is alot better quality than the first version. They are cheap though....

    Both XFX PRO 450W v2 and 550 is Seasonic OEM and better quality than that CX430 (~336-384W depending on the model) unit.
