GAMING IS NOT A CRIME
Hi guys, thinking of this upgrades to my PC.
Sapphire HD 7770 1 ghz GDDR5
Seagate Barracuda 1 TB Internal HDD
Choosing PSU as, Coolmaster Thunder 450 W.
My question is, can this PSU handle those GPU and HDD..?

Am now running on AMD Athlon X4 645 3.10 GHZ, 4 GB ddr3 memory, Asus M4A88T-M LE Motherboard.

Choose these instead:

Sapphire HD 7770 1GB -8000,
WD Caviar Blue 1TB -3800,
Corsair VS450.

Never go with low end Coolermaster PSU as they are using low end parts so its better to go with Corsair,Seasonic and Antec.
Here Antec have very short cables but Corsair and Seasonic are good and have good enough cables for good cable management in any cabinet.

Okay bro. Will go for corsair. :)
BTW, how short are cables.? Too short..? Am using a local case.
Get the followings:-
Sapphire R7 250X 1GB GDDR5 @ 7.9K (http://vedantcomputers.com/index.php?route=product/product&filter_name=r7+250X&product_id=1060)
WD Caviar Blue 1TB @ 3.8K
Antec VP450 @ 2.6K

What are the difference between 7770 and 250X bro..?

Nothing, 250X is a rebadged HD 7770, but its better to go for it because it's newer and has support for TrueAudio...
Id recommend ASUS or Sapphire, whatever fits your tastes

Go for Antec VP450p, Its only Rs 200 more

I bought a Antec VP450P but its 24pin ATX and 8 pin EPS cables are very short so I got Corsair VS550 instead.

Antec VP450P -24 pin 550mm 8 pin 450mm
Corsair VS550 -24 pin 600mm 8 pin 550mm

R7 250X is a rebadged HD 7770, so its better to go for it because it's newer version.

The only actually good low end PSUs are the OLDER CX series, VX series from corsair, Most seasonic models and older Antec models..
The VP450p and the VS series from corsair have near identical internal components.. Both of them have crappy CapXon main capacitors.. But the saving grace for VP450p is the 80 plus bronze efficiency rating which VS does not have.. That is why the VP450p is recommended
Digit magazine should really do a PSU comparision review from specific low end brands like Gigabyte PoweRock and Superb series available from ebay.. on paper they have excellent specs.. but no actual review :(

vp450p does not have bronze certification. not all caps are from capxon either.

Re: HD 7770 Seagate 1 TB - 450W Enough..?

So why does everyone recommend VP450p instead of something like say CX430v2 ?

cx430 v2 had several calls for rma recently. may be corsair is not doing too well here. it has also changed oem for several models.
antec lacked 80 certification because it does not work on 115v main supply(eg.US) and hence is not eligible. but its efficiency is quite high though for its current price.
i have its review links (reaching 89% max)will post later.

Okay bros, so Antec it is. BTW, asking one question, (completely noob to building a pc) is there any extension cables incase the wirings are shorter..?

And how is MSI R7 250 OC gddr5..?

Get asus or sapphire, both have pretty good warranty service

Remember we said R7 250X not R7 250.. R7 250 is inferior to R7 250X
