Hello everyone , need your advise on PSU. Im upgrading my GPU for Powercolor hd4890 oc.
can you guys advice me the best PSU within my budget for the item. After using the Extremeversion PSU calcullator currently im thinking a couple of unit for the PSU

1. Silver Stone (ST50F) 500W
2. Gigabyte 720w
3. Xigmatek (NRP-PC502) 500W 80+ Bronze
3. Cooler Master Extreme Power 650W
4. Thermaltake TR2-550w

this is the psu thats well within my budget & reach(selling in my country). ive done a lot of research but couldnt really find out if those psu mention above would power up my RIG. as in my country theres no 30days money back policy.

(core2duoE7500 , 2x2gbddr2ram , 2xhdd , 1 dvdrw , ) rig speq is very minimal :pt1cable:

raise your budget to some extent and get a corsair 550vx.I promise you won't regret.though xigmatek and thermaltake are fine if you still want to stay in your budget.
but i recommend you to not to see budget in case of such a crucial component and for sake of for such a high end card.(i have learned this thing from this forum).the corsair 550vx could even go 600w easily.

if you have enough $$$ for that grapohics card then you have enough for a corsair 550vx, which is what i would recommend to you.
