Default Best low watt PSU?

I'm lookin for a low wattage PSU to power just a AMD A10-5800k mobo and SSD. Can you guys suggest me something low watt that is high quality? Also the smaller the better but SFF is not a must.

Price don't really matter but the cheaper the better. Also Looks don't matter much but would prefer it to be quiet.

Check out the corsair CX430 for $30 at NCIX. I've used the modular version for an AMD A10 5800k HTPC build and it works great.

Never buy cheap no-name PSUs. Unless you LIKE fire hazards that can potentially burn down your home.

Haven't used it, but OEM seasonic 300w bronze. for $40+8 shipping, but then there is a $10 code until oct 3rd....makes it $38+tax including shipping.

Newegg.ca - SeaSonic SS-300ET Bronze 300W ATX12V V2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Power Supplies

Should do the trick quite nicely...or do you need a smaller sized PSU?

No worries. I think that should be a great PSU, unless you plan on adding a mid to high end gpu at some point.

Not sure if you have purchased it yet, but a good SFF factor is the Silverstone 450W Gold unit. JG gave it a good review, and if you are mashing it into a mITX Case, I can't imagine a better unit for its size and cost.

Just a thought.

The Silverstone is rather loud though. I bought one for an HTPC and couldn't use it because of the noise.
