So theres a list of power supplies which are available at my place and i can afford:

Aerocool STRIKE-X 500W
Aerocool VP-650 650W
Cooler Master GX-series 450W
Corsair CXV2 500W
Gigabyte Superb E570 570W
OCZ ZS series 550W
Thermaltake Smart PSU 450W

The prices are pretty same.
I dont really care about the Watts, because i think that 450W is enough for my PC.

it probably doesnt hurt to have the little extra wattage
October 15, 2012 3:03:12 PM

Well it costs 50% more than any of those i was planning to buy, so im not sure if i can afford that

it still cant supply the stated wattage. i usually consider it sub par
October 15, 2012 3:27:35 PM

That test was for the CX430 and it delivered 428.4 watts?

There are better power supplies but they cost more. If the OP is on a budget, 500w version is a good choice.

Hi Itharis - agree with BigTroll on Aerocool, Coolermaster, & Thermaltake as they have multiple models on
johnnylucky.org Lemon list (disagree that Corsair sucks). I agree with ZINONLY that in your situation
with availability Corsair is a good choice, it's actually a good choice regardless of availability.
