Probably the best budget PSU for those without 2 graphics card and 6 drives (this is enough power for >90% of PCs!)
it's a true 380W which means its no less powerful than a Corsair CX430 or el cheapo 500W.

The "D" indicates this is the newer Delta version not Seasonic, but what i've read they are broadly equivalent in quality, it's not a big step down like what happened with Corsair.

check the reviews.. i can hardly find a bad one

posting this because:
1) i only ever see imho overpriced & overpowered for most PSUs on HUKD
2) it's the best budget PSU i can find after 2 hours research (just had an FSP from a previous deal here blow up, don't want a repeat).
3) i want to see if anyone can beat the total price before i order one :)
thanks

thanks to NoBull here for the inspiration ;)
http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/corsair-650w-tx-series-psu-63-52-delivered-ebuyer/899779

was going to go with CX430
http://www.google.co.uk/products/catalog?hl=en&client=opera&q=corsair+CX430&cid=3294721464053260689&os=reviews

but reviews for EA380 much more solid, so worth a few pounds more for
- reliability
- talk of motherboard compat issues on CX430, none on this
- extra year warranty
- ball bearing fan should outlast sleeve fans on other similar PSUs
- quiet (according to reviews the 80mm fan on this is quieter than the 120mm on most others, strangely
(CX430 was £31 ish on Today Only at Scan)

now to sabotage my own deal and get something off my chest:
bl**dy americans getting these for like $20 after rebates.. how does that work over there!

an excellent PSU at a great price.

My favourite thread with a bunch of geeks discussing the deficiencies of the Corsair CX430: http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/291958-10-corsair-cx430-cheaped

:D

lol i like the 'thanks to NoBull here for the inspiration'... even though he was advising you to get the cx430 and i mentioned the antec!!

edit: naz400r sorry didn't mean to ignore you, and you were right it's better!
i would normally buy seasonic 330/380/430 but can't see any near this price :/

This should be hotter
#6
it's gone up by 18p so why expire it?
i've updated the price, still the best deal afaik (if not, post the better one)

edit: thanks mod!
