    I went shopping for Hardware in Pune and see what I got.

    GTS 250 with 512MB DDR3 from Some Brand "TAG"/? for Rs 8500
    HDD Seagate 500 gb : Rs 2550
    Kingston 2 GB DDR2: Rs 1850
    Cooler Master 500W PSU: Rs. 3500

    these prices are way higher than what I am seeing on itwares.com. So is the site not updated or I am being ripped here?

    Ram is 800 Mhz

    The Brand for the gfx is "TAG"

    I suspected this so I have not bought it from him yet.

    Any good dealer in Pune area who can give me real good stuff for right price?

    Also Coolermaster Extreme Power should be much lesser than the Real Power Pro.

    I got the CM Real Power Pro 460W (80+ Cert) for 3.5k, the extreme 500W shouldn't cost that high. RAM (unless its from the value series) and HDD prices are okay.

    Daylight robbery :p. Maybe I should join this business. Give good components and earn money. Although its not my cup of tea, you spent 3.5k for an obsolete psu. Its a good thing (keeping the crowd's mentality in mind- no pun intended- that's the smartest thing you did) you consulted before buying.

    +1 to all.

    Don't go for this one. It consumes lesser power, but GTS250 is cheaper @ 7.3k AND performs better. You may check benchmarks if you want.

    Get the CM REAL Power Pro (not EXTREME power, which sucks) 460W @ 3.5k. Its great. I suggest that if you can't find a good dealer in Pune, order from www.theitwares.com in Lamington Road, Mumbai. They ship to Pune for Rs. 150 extra, but rest assured, you will get good prices and he is a reliable dealer. You can find some of his deals @ www.techenclave.com/dealers-paradise

    HD4770 has about 80W power consumption
    GTS 250 has 141W power consumption :shock:

    The difference in fps in games btwn these two cards is about 1-5 max. I think HD4770 apart from being highly overclockable, and having a low power consumption, also has NON-Reference cooler too...

    But that's the point, a GPU's power is judged in terms of its performance not OCability. About the power consumption, if he gets the CM Real Power Pro 460W, then there should be no probs running the GTS 250 whatsoever. At stock, the GTS 250 is better. What are the OC power consumption values of the 4770?

    The reference cooler is enough for the GTS 250. Nothing worth paying more for the HD4770. FYI, a rig with i7 965 oced to 3.75GHz and 5850 in crossfire consumes like 365W of power. So I don't think power consumption is of that great an importance here.

    Mail compuciti. Their prices are pretty ok. I dropped them a mail and got a reply after a day. The prices were way better than what your dealer said.

    LOL so u think u can run a i7 965 + HD5850 CFx on the Gigabyte 460W...

    If so, then u hav a lot to learn about power supply, TDP and their affect on product life, dependency on cabinet temperature filter and cooling, the overall life of the entire system and so on.....

    ^Erm.. When did I say anything about the Gigabyte 460W??? All I can see is that as long as he has a good PSU, he can run his rig fine with the GTS250 which is better than the HD4770 at 7.3k.

    Please do not talk as if you know tonnes about all the above stuff. The first thing which you must know is that TDP is not something which matters much as it has been overhyped by marketing teams. It is merely a spec for the drawing board when teams manufacture a product. If you really knew so much about all of these things, then please enlighten the forum with your bright knowledge O great comp@ddict, instead of trolling about the forum and telling other people that they have a lot to learn about stuff.

    The cooler master PSU if it is extreme power then dont get it , but if it is extreme power plus then it would be fine . These are new series psu's and many people confuse them for extreme power series which is wrong .
