have taken over relatives about 4year old pc and works fine but so noisy, culprit seems to be PSU which on original invoice just says 'basic 550W'-its horrendous even with no programmes running!! I need some advice please on a replacement for preferrably no more than about £50, have been recommended a corsair 500w but wonder whether lower power is ok.basic system is 3.33GHz Intel core 2 duo E8600, radeon HD4890 1024MB, corsair 4GB Pc2-6400 CaS5 Memory, 500Gb 7200 hard disc, 22x SATA optical drive 22x, creative sound blaster audigy 7.1 SE OEM also Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro CPU cooler. PC only gets basic use, very little and vbasic shoot up game, film streaming, internet etc. Advice please before my other ear goes deaf!! Thanks
