    PSU's

    look, if u wanna play games and wanna play with a gud gfx card then u should opt for atleast a 400W PSU. many locally made cabinets do come with stock PSU's but their output power is nowhere near 400W. i suggest u go for separate cabinet and PSU. if u have money to spend go for antec or coolermaster PSU's. check out http://deltapage.com for antec products.

    Go for separate Cabinet and PSU. Don't go for Antec cabinets as they cost a hell. Go for i-ball Workhorse cabinet which retails with a 350watt PSU at Rs.1480, where as an Antec Cabinet alone costs around Rs.3500.

    Now its for you to decide.

    Go for the VIP G(Gamers) series cabinets like G-100,G-200 0r G-300 along with Good Powersafe PSU of atleast 500W,if u need some reliability with best value for money.Total cost (inclusive of cabinet & 500w PSU) will be within 4000-5000 bucks INR! I have the G-300!!!

    Like i always say .. higher price mostly translates into better quality ... u could opt for Antec Performance TX 1050B cabinet .. it comes bundled with a SP2.0 500W modular PSU and costs around 8k's ... really worth the money , as u get loads of options to plug in more fans .. infact this cabinet has a very good airflow ... and u can really bring down the temps by simply installing the right fans ...

    Buy separate cabinet and PSU.Inbuilt PSUs are pretty inadequate for current PC configuration(200-250W). I think higher the watts, the longer your mobo will be able to withstand the load.
    U could go for Powersafe 400W and above. Its been recommended by Chip-India, cos it has 2 fans which will cool the PSU down considerably.
    Antec with the same specs costs around 3500.
    Powersafe 400W PSU costs around 1450
    Also go for High-range ATX towers, you can easily upgrade your system. ive been using a high tower cabinet for the past 5 yrs, and im able to upgrade my system without any problems. Look for ones which have a fan placed just above the processor, for proper ventilation. Also the greater the number of fans, the better the cabinet.

    Hope this helps :)
