More about watt psu
  1. Are you looking to go Modular? what size PSU do you have now?
  2. You need a minimum of 400 watts PSU that has at least 17 Amps on the 12 Volt rail.

    I suggest a 500 watts to 550 watts PSU - good brand like Seasonic, Corsair, XFX, Antec.
  3. 450-550w would be apropriate you don´t want a cheap one though companies like: xfx, corsair, cooler master make pretty good psus
  4. If it were me I would go with this one(XFX 550W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply) http://pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-power-supply-p1550sxxb9. 550 is a little overkill for your system, but you will have A LOT of upgrade room in the future.
  5. This Corsair CX430 should be enough.

  6. I live in india. Most of these sites dont ship to india. its better for you guys to just suggest a name and ill search it out. Thanks for the quick replies.
