I wouldn't trust that thing to power an Atom and no graphics card. Stay far, far away from it.

You should rather take a look into the cxm series from corsair. They are pretty cheap rn. But that is a firestarter, not a psu

My budget is £40. I need something that has 2 pcie connectors and is over 500w. Ive ordered a GTX 970 and realized that my PSU doesn't have any pcie connectors.

So I found a psu on eBay and it has everything that I want out of a psu. It sounds too good to be true. Can you check it out and see if it's a scam or not. I ain't good at this. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F182044159531

I've seen that unit on hundreds of overview videos - but not a single test. Strongly advise staying away from it courtesy of Amazon UK reviews: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Artic-Supply-Featuring-Floppy-PCI-Express/product-reviews/B009S9832Q/ref=cm_cr_dp_d_hist_1?ie=UTF8&filterByStar=one_star&reviewerType=all_reviews#reviews-filter-bar

I once did the unthinkable, back many headphones ago...

I split an audio split, again

Whats your rest of system? Gtx 970 + something like a 6700k should only really require 400w.

The rest of my system is fine. I just want a higher wattage incase I want to upgrade again. My current system has a gt 1030, i5 650, 250gb HDD, 8gb ram and 500w psu (with no pcie connectors)

it has a 3y warranty and whiles its still not very good, its functional and won’t fail. The fan is pretty bad tho.

 

with another 10, you can get bronze and semi-modularity.
