Hello, I live in bhubaneswar and they suggested me cabinet of i ball at Rs 1500 with warrenty for smps 3 yrs. I want to add a graphics card 2GB DDR3 priced at Rs 3200. I don't know the brands available here because they normally sell the i ball, intex, supercomp, zebronics, oddyssey etc. What a normal standard power supply unit costs which would be in my budget which is not maximum lets say Rs 2500 or below. Let me the brands avaliable and their prices so that i may inquire about them. Originally my PC budget was 26 thousand but reading this thread, I think i will try to invest in good power supply even if we dont have power flacutations frequently but i am worried about my graphics card. Normally local dealers don't store much branded items and even if i buy online, the problem with warrenty may occur with no service center present. Also the shopkeeper whom you buy everything but not the power supply doesnt want to help you out as you did not purchase from him. Its ok if you purchase the power supply through him whether branded or not

There are power fluctuation in bbsr once in a while. Good decision on taking a proper psu.
The suggested corsair VS450 is a good buy (maybe the best in your budget) and it has a service centre near rly crossing sahidnagar.

Hello, I have seen these 3 models-

Corsair- VS 450

Gigabyte PoweRock Power Supply, True 550W 550 Watt SMPS

Cooler Master Thunder 450W 450 Watts PSU


All coming under Rs 2700. But coolermaster do not have a service center here in Bhubaneswar and Corsair has and Gigabyte(may be). But i want to know which would be the good value for money starting with the lowest.

My specs-

i3 second generation 2100

PH 61 Asus

4 GB DDR3 Ram

500 Gb Sata HDD

20 inch LED monitor

Graphics card- HD 6670 or GTS 450

Thanks. I have although decided for Corsair VS 450 because it has the service center facility but still i would like to know your view.

VS450 is best out of all these and if budget allows then Corsair cx430 could be a better option

how's THERMALTAKE PSU?

Amazing but availability is very less

VS 450 is OK, but check out CX 430-CX 500. specially CX 500. they're better.

In every case VS450 or CX430V2 will suffice.
But if you haven't bought any components yet, I think you should serious consider against buying i5-750. Its EOLed ~1 year ago.
