More about which choose
  1. I won't recommend any of those PSU.

    You should get a better quality PSU.

    This Corsair 550VX can run any single GPU:

    If you want something cheaper then Corsair 450VX will also run the card very well:

    These are high quality PSU and you won't regret getting one!!
  2. Thanks for the fast response but in my country only a couple of PSU manufacturers are available like:

    1.Cooler Master with 460W Real Power
    2.Hipro 480W Real Power
    3.Glacial Tech 550W Real Power
    4.Gembird 650W Real Power
  3. This is going to sound strange, but, in the absence of quality PSU's, buy the heaviest one you can find.

    "Heavier" means bigger heatsinks, transformers, and inductors.
  4. The CoolerMaster 460W Extreme Power Plus is the best option. Anyway, this power supply should be sold as a 430 W unit. If you are building an entry-level PC with just one or two hard disk drives and just one video card (the 4850 included), this power supply is a good option until you have the possibility to buy a decent power supply for your PC.

    Extreme Power series was not so good.Old models.Low efficiency.No PFC.

    @OP:
    Try to get Coolermaster Real Power Series PSU.They are good ones.
  6. Do you have other budget brands like Fortron, Spire, Sirtec, Rasurbo, in there?
