  1. here's my configuration : amd athlon II X4 635 @2.9 GHz. |gigabyte
    GA-880GM-UD2H |corsair 2x2GB DDR3
    1333 MHz. RAM | Seagate 500 GB HDD |
    I am also going to buy 22 inch led monitor and will put amd radeon HD 6850 later.
  2. Yep it's better then generic.
  3. but the question is how much better? I am getting a local (iball) for 750INR and tagan one for 3500INR. Is it worth it?
  4. To be honest with you i'd buy a Corsair over either one of those units.
    You only need a quality 450-500W psu to run your specs with a 6850.
    The psu is the last place in your build you would want to cheap out.
    I strongly advise you to spend 3000-3500INR on the psu which is the heart of your system.

    Seasonic is considered the best oem of psu's.
  5. yah I was searching for corsair vx450 but it isn't available here. my father doesn't allow me to buy online. so I decided to opt for tagan as no other good brand has 500 W psu available here. thanks for your advice. I only wanted to know whether tagan is good enough for the job.
  6. just purchased tagan stonerock tg500-u37
  7. For reference check this site (unfortunately in german):

    Seems to be a descent buy.
  8. mine is u37 not u33.

    The u33 was ok,and actually an improvement over its predecessor(more efficient),hopefully the u37 is a further improvement.
    Maybe has 105 degree caps instead of 85's = i don't know because i haven't seen a review.
  10. yah! thank you for giving your precious time to me.
