What's the best PSU under $40, preferred 500 Watts or more.

Are you open to using MiR's?

this

There are Seasonic's in the price range but they don't have any 6pin or even 6+2pin (obviously :P) PCI-E connectors.

What does that mean? Can I still connect a GPU?

What's your build.... This will make it a lot easier.

Only if it draws power from the PCI slot itself, which limits you to a few different 750 ti's (some require a connector) as your best option.

You will not find a non frying your system, possibly, PSU for under 40 bucks. The PSU is the heart of your system, and as such, it should be one of the best quality parts in your system.

The b1 evga is not a quality PSU. This is a quality evga.

In my opinion it's a decent PSU. It's more reliable than the competition.

It would work in a low use build. It's not meant for a gaming rig or for overclocking. For a browsing, email, and social media pc they are fine. It's a tier 3 PSU.

The OP didn't told us about high-end GPUs or overclocking. I've no problem with Tier 3 PSUs.
