understood. with all those suggestions, it comes to these :

cx500v2, GS500, seasonic 520,tx550v2/M

i don't find any online shop with GS500 or TX550 ( :shock: some TX550 are in ebay with absurd priced from 11k -21k , whereas TX650 sells @6k), thought if tx550 were ~5k, it would be ok investment for 5 years. any idea if these gs500/tx550 available locally (kolkata) ? and @ what prices ?

seasonic is probably the best among these except TX. are you ppl sure they don't replace faulty one with brand new ones ?

if those 3 are having such problems, probably i will have no other choice than go for cx500v2. :x

Don't worry cx series is good enough. My brother has been using it for 2.5 years almost. No issues.
And if you get any issue within warranty just give it to service centre and corsair will send you a brand new replacement psu. :)

. so, is there any way to repair this card ? who does the maintenance work for XFX cards, will they do it even after warranty, for money ?

thanks topgear and everybody for your support. it's getting graphics card centric, but if i m to get new hardware, i will get them to play bf3.

so, i will do some research, consider my options and open a new thread in gamer or new system section later to discuss it a whole. kindly post ur suggestions there when its available.

^^

Well if you are going to replace the card why not something like this as a last resort.
It was featured on lifehacker so must can't be hoax?
Anyway don't blame me if you further damage it or blow something up :p

i think i will check it with the service centre before baking my card.
