        If it was me, I'd go for a decent 500w model so if you were to hybrid crossfire your APU with a dedicated GPU at a later date, you dont have to worry about upgrading your PSU again and still have enough head room for further upgrades beyond your current setup.

        If cable management/cleanliness is important to you too, id go for this PSU, if not - save a few quid and go for the non modular version here.

                  Its always better to stick with branded PSU's. Cheap variants that offer high power for a low price usually follow the rule of 'if something looks too good to be true, it usually is'. Cheap power supplies are less reliable than branded ones and have far less safety features, so if your PSU goes pop, it can take the entire PC with it too.

                      Arianet is just a brand rename of another manufacturer.

                      Rather than listing all of the companies, they generally bundle similar items together and label them Arianet. The GPU range can vary from a cheap brand like VTX or XFX to more respected brands like Sapphire and MSI. With PSU's its not the same story im afriad, they are just rebranded cheap models such as CiT - which (dont get me wrong), serve a purpose but if its reliability and system security you are after, its worth spending a few extra on something more reliable.

                          No worries

                          In the greater scheme of things, the power supply is the single most important investment in a PC. It can last through several builds and will protect your components if it blows ir their is a sudden power surge or electrical outage. You can cut corners with most other components and not have to worry too much, but for the PSU its worth paying a little extra for reliability & protection

                              How about this? When it comes back in stock:

                              Personally, I've heard bad things about the Corsair CX range. My mate's CX600 went pop after less than a year and it only powered an Athlon II and 6770. The XFX in the above link is the best value Aria sell IMO.
