Hello everybody
I have decided to upgrade my Graphic card to a Gigabyte 7850 OC 2gb Windforce. I have 3 options
regarding the PSU.

1.800W Umax (local Indian make) -very cheap,just Rs 1250 (~23$)
Shopkeeper told me not to go with it as its not good enough to even start the 7850.

2.Cooler master Thunder 500W (2 rails)

3.Corsair VS 550W (1 rail)

Please suuggest the best option amonst the above three.I dont intend to overclock any of my components.And also do I need to change my cabinet?The shopkeeper said the current cabinet is too cramped and there wont be sufficient cooling when a branded PSU with thick wires is used.

I have 160 gb HDD,1 optical disk drive,amd 8120 and 4gb ram.

I have already burnt my motherboard and hd 6670 last year.So please suggest the best option for me.

Thanks a lot in advance.
