However I'd disagree that intels have an advantage when it comes to photoshop and video editing / rendering (esp the latter). Even though i5 3570 is better than AMD's 8350 in power consumption under load, that...

    Semi-Rig upgrade. Components almost finalised, need suggestions.

    PC upgrade (not a new rig)

    The CM Real power pro 460w is a 80+ bronze rated smps. Not to confuse with the extremepower series which have rather shoddy reliability. Thank you for the inputs, however finally decided on the following components. NZXT Lexa S case ( 5635/- including shipping and a CM 140mm fan)...

    Looking for a GPU (to run dual screens)

    Well the price is very tempting enough to buy it off rightaway, but that means I have to take a trip to Mumbai sometime for that. Online vendors barely have any options to choose from, and at least 400-500 bucks more than what you are quoting :???: Sapphire HD6770 offered on online vendor sites...

    PSU

    PSU wattage calculator ^ Use that calculator to specify all the components. I gave in the Athlon X4 630, 2xDDR3 RAM sticks, 2xSata 7200 RPM HDD, 1 ODD, HD 5770, 2x80mm fans , 2x120mm fans and it gave out a 400W figure with 100% peak load, keeping another 25% headroom for safety, the vx450 would...

    PSU

    Well to be honest, the CPU's these days have grown very power hungry and therefore they need a consistent and a reliable power supply, while the generic ones like intex did well in times of P3 and P4, nowadays they cant. Also you can look at the NZXT Gamma cabinet, which is an excellent black...
