    I Think you will find it difficult to get Thermaltake.

    Antec you can certainly buy online from sites like
    theitdepot.com
    deltapage.com
    ebay.in

    But the prices there will be little too much (+shipping) and you better try at your local stores.

    You are definitely correct regarding the ampereage. But what is written on the PSU alone does not mean that it will be able to deliver it. Nowadays even very cheap ones have high ratings written on it and most of the dealers will recommend them. So what we can do is to rely on known brands even though it is not an international one and to avoid light weight ones.

    Antec SP450 should be ok

    you may get a cooler master 430 for maybe arnd 2.8k

    whatever you do stay away from computer empire at nehru place

    btw the antec probably has dual rails, so consider sp450, maybe arnd 3.5k or so

    It is not possible to calculate the Amperes from the wattage of the PSU because different rails, 12V, 5V, 3.3V etc will have different ratings. In short, you can only depend on the ratings printed on the PSU or the accompanying literature which can actually be relied upon only in case of reputed brands.

    But suppose there is only one rail, say 12V and the wattage is 360, then the ampere rating should be 30 A.

    It should be exactly 30A or <30A or >30A.

    Theoretically 30A but the companies may rate it as peak, average etc.

    (Like music system's power specified as PMPO (Peak Music Power) for which the companies use their own conventions and so no comparison is possible. But well known brands use RMS power which is scientific.)
