  1. 18a on the 12v is a rather low for a 450w unit, i would upgrade to a good 500w unit.

    are you sure its not 12v1 18a and 12v2 18a ?
  2. that was all wrtten give me some advice i dont wanna burn gpu on buying day i know nothing about psu help...
  3. well do you have budget?
    what country are you in?
    what are your PC's specs?
  4. i m in pakistan
    i hv 2.5ghz dual core
    2gb corsair ddr2
    250gb hd
    nvidia 630i/7100 motherboard
    anythin else and thnX for replay
    budget can be but on my own
  5. unfortunately i know nothing about your marketplace for PC hardware although there are a few poster from your neck of the woods and they could help you on where to buy.

    what can i tell you is, the better PSU come from antec, seasonic, corsair, and xfx
    BFG and OCZ make solid budget units also.

    its also better to purchase the best 400w unit (as an example) you can afford rather then getting the cheapest 500w unit. more often the 400w will actually offer more power then the cheap 500w unit.
  6. thanx but look at these

    which can be better at lowest price???
  7. there are many other avalible at low prices ACER ones and DELL and may be others also
  8. the corsair 400w can run the GTS250. its very well made and peaks above the 400 stated watts.

    it has 30a on its 12v and a PC with a GTS250 needs only around 24a.
  9. any other sugestion??
  10. cooler master 460 watt is of 3600rs and corsair 400 is 0f 4500 so which better?
  11. the corsair, much better

    the cooler master is OK, it should be able to handle the GTS250...but the corsair is better
  12. ok ty
  13. Give your psu a try before buying another.
  14. thanX for replay can it damage gts 250?

    afaik: It is the psu that could be damaged or fail under overload, not the VGA. in some cases vga or system overheat and instability may indicate a faulty PSU as well.
  16. thanX

    But a PSU could go wrong and that's when they're unpredictable.

    @OP
    Never get a cheap PSU, the Corsair that was recommended would be a good choice. If you're uncertain about your current PSU, don't risk it.
  20. Those cheap Coolermaster PSUs are garbage; found in competent technical reviews (those with load testing, waveform analysis, etc) to not be capable of outputting what's on their label. ANY of the Corsairs listed will be good. I've never read a bad competent technical review of a Corsair PSU (nor of Seasonic, or Antec).
  21. thanx but no prob if psu burnz hehe..
  22. Wrong. A PSU that burns sometimes does so in a manner that destroys attached components. Even professional reviewers occasionally lose test equipment that way.
  23. thanX for that i will keep everything in its place...
