Budget ?

Corsair VX450 is probably the best solution for you , although it might be out of stock :(

Avoid Cooler Master PSUs , i had been recommened to avoid it like a hundred times , it must be that bad.

get a 550 W from corsair or cooler master

As many PSU Calculator (Antec psu cal, Coolermaster advance psu cal, Corsair psu cal, Extreme psu cal) said that Minimum requirement is 370 watts. So I prefer only 450 watts.

Budget ?

This is my best choice as 5 years warrenty and service center nearby, but I heard some UPS does not support or conflict somthing. I dont know much more.

I am not discard tou, just asking you- What about Coolermaster GX450W , new lunch, max. output-540 ( as per manufacter)

GX 450 : The fact that we couldn’t pull more than 450 W from is also a double-edged sword. Some users will like that the unit has its protections working at a tight configuration, while others would prefer that the unit had some margin for overloading.

Source : Hardwaresecrets.com


VX450 : If we could summarize this power supply in just one word it would be “wow!”. Together with Antec EarthWatts 500 W this is the best power supply up to 500 W we have ever seen, bringing the best cost/benefit ratio for the average user building a mainstream PC with a good video card, graduating Summa Cum Laude in our tests. You will bring home a relatively inexpensive power supply that even though is sold as being a 450 W unit can deliver up to 570 W at 48º C – in fact Corsair could have easily labeled this power supply as a 500 W unit, but they preferred to stay on the safe side.

Need your total suggestion, which is better and why ( with technical view) including Antec EarthWatts 500 W (D green) . But Antec EA is for top mount in the cabinet (front air suction horizontal line) as my Cabinet Coolermaster Elit430 has bottom mount PSU, and Corsair VX450 inlet air is from bottom vertical line.

if you are sure that you wont be going for a card greater in performance than HD 6770 and also if you wont be overclocking your cpu or any major upgrade
then you can go for FSP saga II 500W @ 2k<-- this would be enough i guess

IMO if the UPS is not healthy enough or local elcheapo brand, then such cases are common with branded PSU's.

Please mention the UPS brand currently you use.

When I post this thread all required information to select a PSU given, please go to top of this page.

I have read/browsed a lot of articles on power supply which had made me believe that one should use a pure sive wave UPS with Active PFC based PSU. The UPS I have mentioned is stepped sine wave (impure sive wave ), so its a bad idea to hook it up on Corsair VX450 which has Active PFC. Pure sive wave UPS is a lot expensive (more than putting the CPU + MOBO together). So its difficult for me to buy it and I don't see any PSUs with Passive PFC available. Line Conditioner will not work because we have lots of power cuts here in India which makes UPS a dire need. Any Passive PFC PSU recommended ? Any other solution to my problem ?

Please advice me with technical view.
