Zebronics PSUs are not meant for a Core i7 system.I would advise you to upgrade your PSU to a good brand.The best brands available in India are Corsair and Coolermaster.Get at least the Corsair 550 VX or the Coolermaster Silent Pro 600W if you want to overclock.
its a local brand psu....ZEBRONICS platnum series...but the fan on vga is rotating....does it still mean that its dying??
With my first GTX 260 my 650 watt power supply (big enough to power a single 260), would NOT power the card, the fan would spin just like yours but I would have no video. So yes it is probable that your 700W power supply is not doing the job.
70%? I never heard of such standards. I suggest you get a reliable one from a well known brand with 80+ efficiency.
Based on my experience with crappy PSU's, they don't deserve to be paired with high end setup. You might risk losing your whole system due to PSU failure. If you can afford an expensive i7 CPU, then purchasing a $100-$200 PSU shouldn't be an issue
juat as welshmousepk said, a well known brand are usually expensive. but a crappy PSU with a high price tag is also lurking out there. Make sure you don't fall into a trap (am I exaggerating this? lol)
To be precise, get a 80+ efficiency (preferably the gold one, if possible), good components (tier 1 capacitors), active PFC with at least 600W (higher is better though) of power rating from a well known brand. They usually give quite a long warranty to their products, reflecting the confidence they have about the quality. I'd really like to know the outcome. Just tell us when you've solved this issue. Good luck!
