  1. what is your budget? i think 550watts will be ok. 600watts with 4 6pin so that you can cf also in future.:)
  2. my budget is arund 7000rs..
  3. if ur from india then go into the hardware shop and buy one 6850 it is about 15-20% better then that one and you have to buy an good psu such as corsair,xfx,coolermaster with one 6pin and one 6+2pin pci connector these three companys are good and well known you will get these companies psu in india if you want to buy psu then buy an 550watts xfx pro that will be very good and can handle that card very easily.:)

    if u have budget of 7000rs for both psu and gpu so first get an psu then after 1 or two months get an good gpu such as 6850 or if u cant wait then buy an hd 6770 it can handle games on 1080p and one xfx pro 550watts psu they both will cost you around 7500- 8000rs.:)zubair in hindi agar tum kharid sakte ho to hd6850 aur xfx pro 550watts lelena vo acche company ke products hai ya fir 1 mahina aur intezaar karlo aur 8000 tak jama karlo.
