I need a power supply. The one I'm using recently broke or something. When I try to turn it on I have to mess with the main power supplying cord. It's really annoying and frustrating.

What's a decent new power supply I could get?

Obviously I don't want to pay too much but I don't have a super strict budget.

If you mean the plug going to the wall are you sure it is not a cord or even outlet issue?

No I worded that poorly, I mean the 20 pin connector that goes into the motherboard.

Okay, that makes sense. Before going with a new supply I would try and make sure it is the PSU cable and not the motherboard connector. If nothing else you can see if a local thrift store has a PSU for a couple bucks just to try and see if you have the same problem or not.

Good thing is your power supply is still under warranty.
