  1. Just make sure that your motherboard have pcie x 16 slot for your new 6850. If it does not you will need new motherboard. Anyway, if you can provide your exact specs of your PC that would be very helpful.

    thats my mobo and yes it have pciE slot :D
    do i need to change anything else if i m upgrading my psu? thanxx
  3. I am not sure what vendors are available in India, but Newegg isn't one of them, so I won't use any Newegg links.
    As a very general guide only, a quality modern PSU has full range active PFC (no little voltage switch, but can operate on ~100V-240V) and some level of 80+ certification for efficiency. Seasonic, Antec, Corsair, XFX, and Enermax/LEPA are among the better brands that are readily available in the US. Newer FSP and NZXT models are also decent. Coolermaster is not; their GX models which appear to qualify test poorly, and their older "Extreme" or "Extreme Plus" models are overrated and/or are missing protection circuits they claim to possess.
    A 380W Antec Earthwatts or 400W Corsair Builder cost around $45 here, and either could handle a HD6850 without difficulty, even though they are less than 500W. A cheap "500W" PSU may have a dishonest label on it (there are no consequences here for that sort of consumer fraud), but only be good for 350W or less.

    Edit: The Corsair PSU that sunnk linked would be an excellent choice.
  4. soemone told me that 500w psu is of 1500 rupees it ir true?
