I'm looking into totally upgrading my system in the future for medium gaming use but before that i need a new PSU for my current system that will also then be used in the future system too. So i need advice on the choices i have looked at so far and advice/suggestion on other PSU's within my budget

I've got a max budget of around £60 and have 2 PSU's in mind so far which are:

OCZ StealthXStream 500w Silent Power Supply - It is well within my budget which is a major plus and has enough power for my needs as well as enough connections should i need them.

OCZ ModXStream Pro 500w Silent SLI Certified Modular Power Supply - It is right on my budget but it is modular which is a plus and it has every connection i will ever possibly need.

CPU: Intel E1280 2.0Ghz @ 3.0Ghz stable
RAM: 2x Kingston Hyper X 1Gb DDR2 800
Mobo: Abit IP35
PSU: Antec Basiq 430 Watt PSU
HDD: WD 500Gb Sata
CPU Cooler: Golden Orb II
OS: Xp 32bit
Case: Xclio Propeller

Well personally I found that exact psu but 700W (OCZ MODXSTeam pro 700W silent Modular 80+bronze certified PSU) for $50 on sale here in the states after rebate which comes with a lifetime warranty which has been working very well for me so far+is very silent. I would recommend it to anyone but Corsair is a bit better brand+bigger price tag so the choice is yours.

What about an Antec Basiq Plus 550W Modular Power Supply

Its 500watts, is modular and within your budget at around £56.
