His friend is nearly on the brink of make the PSU overload .. He better change it before anything happens.

My current config:

AMD Phenom X4 9650 Quad-Core 2.31GHz
Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-S2HP
4 GB DDR2 RAM
Samsung SSD 120GB
WD 1TB HDD
Sony DVD RW
External HDDs connected as needed.

Current PSU zebronics 450W seems to be failing as connecting optical drive + hdd results in random resets/bootup failure etc.
Is antec bp300p enough for above config or should i go for vp450p?

I plan to get a 2TB Hdd to add to above.

Edit: how about Corsair VS450 ?

For how long one should keep using a quality PSU? I have a Corsair VX450 which entered into its 6th year recently. It has been totally trouble-free so far and still good enough as my system never crosses 300W. But for how long I can keep using it before it starts giving trouble?
