    Hi,
    I Have been using an Antec VS450 SMPS for my PC build (using for 5yrs).
    PC Specs are - Pentium G4400, MSI H110V MB, HDD (160GB, 500GB & 1TB), DVD Drive, ATI 7700 Firepro Graphics card.
    Now my Smps is not working (When switched ON, it OFF's within 5 seconds). Checked with a Frontech spare SMPS, system is working.
    Should I service the Antec SMPS or purchase new; Also suggest budget models with Longterm reliability. I had thought of Coolermaster (COOLER MASTER MWE 450 MPW-4502-ACABW SMPS) or Corsair (Corsair VS450 450W Power Supply CP-9020170-UK). Purchase will be Online (Amazon or Primeabgb)

    My PC usage - Browsing, Movies, Games (Civ 5, CS:GO, Battlefield 3, GTA4)

    Antec doesn't make VS450 ? Is it VP450p or Corsair VS450
    Don't buy Corsair VS450. Wait for PSU experts, Dont have any idea about this price segment.

    What is your budget?

    VS450 is a fine PSU, but try and get the CX430.

    cx 43o is probably an older model,the op should consider getting a CX 450(grey label unit).

    Corsair CX450 is your best bet. Try contacting primeabgb to check when it comes back in stock.

    Thank All :thumbs:. Just purchased CoolerMaster MW450 from Primeabgb, since the backup smps was not working properly. Fitted the smps, now system is working fine.
