$29\ EVGA BT 450W 80+ BRONZE ATX PSU

Maximum PC - - BUDGET-BUSTING BUILD -

An­other bud­get build, and an­other delve into the realm of EVGA’s su­per­bud­get BT450 power sup­ply. Yup, this is one of those kind of builds. It’s hard to rec­om­mend any­thing else when it comes to su­per-lowend power sup­plies. We al­ways sug­gest that you go with a known brand, be­cause it pro­vides you with a bit more peace of mind, and if things ever go wrong (and they can and do), you can rest as­sured that there’s some form of war­ranty be­hind you. And, let’s face it, EVGA’s war­ranties have be­come leg­endary.

That said, is a 450W power sup­ply enough? The an­swer: Yup. From the wall, we’re ex­pect­ing this rig to draw around 50W to­tal peak power, or within that area. You could throw in a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11GB (se­ri­ously, though, don’t do this), and still be left with 150W of head­room to play with. So, there’s plenty of room for ex­pan­sion later down the line if you want to swap out that GPU, CPU, or me­mory.
