I recently bought the AMD 8350 it came on Wednesday and that night after 3 hours of the new CPU being in my Power Supply Blew up. So the next day I went down to my local PC repair place and they fitted a new one in. It was a Alpine 700W, this was the same one as my old one and again about 1 hour ago the Power Supply blew up.

So overall I am thinking of getting a Power Supply between 50-100 pounds if anyone has any recommendations on what Power Supply to get please reply to this post.

Thanks.

Assuming you have a one video card setup, something in the 550W-600W range should do. Look for PSUs by Seasonic, Corsair, and Antec, in that order.

Yes I have a 1 graphics card setup what is the Sapphire Dual-X Radeon R9 270X and this requires 500 watts and my CPU the AMD 8350 requires 125 watts and that adds up to 625 watts so I have looked at the recommendations you have put and I have chose 1 out of the 3 by looking at the reviews and this is the:

Will this be good Power Supply to get because I want a Power Supply what can last.

Thank you for replying Back.

Hey, I just bought a new high end PSU and learned about Jonny Guru reviews. I had never heard of him until a dude at MicroCenter looked up reviews to help me choose a PSU. I know he just reviewed some EVGA PSU's and gave them KILLER SCORES. I just bought the EVGA SuperNova 1300 G2 which this dude gave a 9.7 rating.

I've never seen the Alpine series (not sure it's available in the States), but I saw it was 15-22 GBP ($23-34 USD). That price tells me it's a very low quality PSU and it isn't surprising that it failed so quickly. Unfortunately, PSUs are one area where it's crucial to get quality. The Corsair you purchased is definitely more than adequate but is a much better brand so you should be good.

Hope this helps.
