Corsair VX550

Corsair and Seasonic are two brands that have a reputation for high quality power supplies that consistently earn high marks in technical reviews. They are reliable, stable, and come with a 5 year warranty. Some of the newer models come with a 7 year warranty (in the USA).

PSUs manufactured by Seasonic are simply awesome because they simply have the best reputation for manufacturing high quality PSUs.

Corsair's PSUs are manufactured by Seasonic and CWT. The Corsair VX550 is manufactured by CWT. They have a good reputation, but is overshadowed by Seasonic.

Well, OK. You don't need me. :) 

But I agree with Johnny. A Corsair 550VX (or other similar high quality PSU) will power any CPU with any single GPU.

+1.. Don't skimp on the PSU.. A good PSU will last you probably more than any of the other system components.. Thus, any investment made on that front is perfectly wise and highly recommended..

@ all thnx for ur quick & kind help

@ obsidian86- Not buying Online Going to purchase from Local Store

@ JohnnyLucky- Ok !! VX 550, but why not CMPSU 600G- It belongs to Corsair only & additional 50W(any use of a 50W?...stupid quest. :) ) 600G is newly launched & as part of Gaming series psu's from corsair as stated in description, it is availoable for same price but.....but sadly only 3yrs warranty compare to 5yr of VX.....dts the only diff.?

@hasappra- Not available in my country

@jaguarskx- TYFS bt seasonic got Poor AAS (after sales service) here compare to Corsair which is praised by a lot of Users of Corsair Products. USA & some European countries r greatest when it comes to After Sales Servicing of IT Products. Hope we to will get such.....

@ jsc - What are ur thoughts on CoolerMaster GX Series?? which were launched to compete Corsair's VX

@ Emperus - Yes sir, Since I realized it 3yrs ago I throw out Money Buying good PSUs but currently its just not Fitting in Budget; was planning to buy 650w or 700w psu bt :( :( 

@blackhawk1928- No to SSDs till 3-4yrs so is my choice is enough?

Frankly speaking the Corsair VX450W watts would be enough to handle a HD4850 and all the other things you throw at it. I have almost a similar config, only thing is i have Intel. There's no need for the VX550W.
