I am going to tell you that the higher the efficiency rating goes, the more expensive the PSU usually gets.

Get the HX850, then. What models do you usually see when you browse in shops?

you won't believe it we don't even have shops displaying PC hardware :( 

we are still in the stone age

i never ever seen cooler master or corsair name flashing anywhere in the whole of India ever :ouch: 

we do have suppliers but no displays

everything's procured on confirmed orders

until then these things sit in high security warehouses that's all :??:

unlike coolermaster , corsair does not has any India presence

some firms are directly importing the stuff,

however these firm do not have any service agreements here in India

to say it plainly there's no India manager at corsair Inc. :( 

again unlike cooler master which has a dedicated India manager at its Taiwan headquarters

The bottom line is: you are asking for a 900W PSU. What exactly are you using that needs 900W? If it's a server, then 900W might be right. If it's an average desktop, though, you might need only 500W, maybe even 400W. Unfortunately, at those low power ratings, there are very few PSUs that have 80 PLUS certifications. The new Enermax PRO87+ and MODU87+ are certified 80 PLUS Gold and are sold as 500, 600, and 700W PSUs.
