Seasonic, Corsair and Antec are quality manufacturers. In India you might have trouble finding them though. For your unit a quality 400watt would be plenty.

thanks rolli for your reply i was searching the whole net and this forum as well and found corsair would be fine for me,but i am surprised till now i nowhere seen the name bestec which is in my compaq presario by default 300 watt,and i am thinking to go for 600 watt in case i do furthur upgradation in my pc later on like a 1 gb graphic card what do you suggest

600 watt is a good size to carry over to a new build later on. Bestec is a manufacturer that is supplier to the OEM's and are not on the retail market.
