    hey ppl,
    i'm having problem with my spms...there was i loud noise when i switched on my PC and after that there was a burning smell coming out of my SMPS.....
    so i'm guessing my SMPS went POOF!!

    it was a 300w microtek SMPS, can anyone recommend me a good quality SMPS...i generally leave my PC on for days at an end

    it has just one fan apart from the SMPS one...
    also, i have 3 optical drives and a 6600 graphics card which requires a power cable, my system spces are given below:

    P4 2.6 Ghz
    intel D865GBF motherboard
    1 GB ram
    Geforce 6600 graphics card
    3 optical drives
    1 floppy drive
    1 seagate 160GB SATA hard-drive

    JUST GO FOR COOLING MASTER 550 watts coz it will come in a handy budget of rs. 1900/- and everyone knows cooling master is another good brand as antec

    but i too use antec 650 FAN less and its great but really very very expensive if you can spend 8000/- bucks then go for it ,, as it simply rules.. :)

    @setharsh: Mention the budget....

    If money is not a problem then you can go for Antec 400Watt PSU otherwise go for local iball type psu....

    Then you can go to 'Nehru Place' to purchase Antec 400PSU...

    I don't know the exact price of Antec 400PSU but it was around 2000-2100 last year....
