450w psu

I'm planning to purchase a 450W PSU for my PC. Following PSUs are available in my city :
- Intex 450 W @ Rs 650
- Mercury 450 W @ Rs 650
- Oddessy 450 W @ Rs 750
- Frontech 450 W @ Rs 680

Which one of the following is the best ?

Note: It is difficult to get any other brand PSU , so don't suggest a FSP, CM or zebronic PSU

All the above PSU are not worth investment. Why not try the online stores.

My PC config is givn in my signature & my budget is around 700. Actually i thought that i would get a zebronic 450W PSU in my city.

How will it kill my system ?

Also the link to calculator which mukherjee gave showed minimum requirement as 192W & recommended 250W but my PC works with a 160W PSU. So i've to change it

Re: 450 w psu

A defective or bad-intentioned power supply can lock the PC, can result in hard disk bad sectors, can result blue screen of death errors and random resets and freezings, added to many other problems. There have been cases that spikes have fried southbridge, northbridge and even onboard graphic and sound chips. Hard drive and ram are usually the first victims. People eventually spend 1000-5000 (depending on their system) to get it working. But in reality it works barely but its a damaged wreck. Prevention is better than cure, dont you think?

I bought a Frontech 500W PSU for Rs.400 :| Rs 680 is overpriced.

Buy the Zebronics PSU , it is the best of the lot.

Seeing the geographical location of Port Blair, everything is overpriced here. I bought my 5670 @ 6800 when net prices were just 6000 !!!

Better to pay a bit extra for a good PSU, then have a bad one take all down with it.

Re: 450 w psu

mate get a good PSU, you have a pretty good system, be on the safe side. What if the new PSU blows and takes some of your hardware

Re: 450 w psu

OK tell me the cheapest good PSU ?
Note: I've a UPS too with surge protection

the ups will only protect from surges from the mains. what if your pc needs ~400 watts for some seconds(like during games, when there is a lot of load), the el cheapo psu will just shut down or maybe even damage itself, becuase it is not rated for that kind of performance.
