Dude, read the original post. He already said that he have a graphics card already, but didn't give us more info about it, which is not needed anyways.

13. Which city do you live in and are you open to buying from shops from other city/states? Delhi & No
FSP SAGA II 500W @ 2.3K
Zebronics Bijli(w/o psu)@1.2k
FSP Saga II 500W @2.3k
Some clarifications:
First, if SMC doesnt have FSP psus in stock no one else will. I went to search a few days ago and they didnt have any FSP psu in stock.
So @OP do confirm the availability before purchase. If they dont have it then get a Corsair CX-series psu or a Gigabyte Superb 460W (CE might have it).
Second, I've said this in many other forums also, Zebronics Bilji does NOT cost 1.2k in New Delhi. Without PSU it'll be available for around 1.6k Trust me, dont waste your time bargaining. Get a CM Elite 310 Normal/Transparent for 1.5-1.6k. That'll be better.
