More about please good specs
  1. I'm gonna say no outright. Mainly because I've never heard of Zebronics.
    Where are you buying these? I'll help you look for better, more reliable PSUs.

    I find it weird that a lot of money was spent on other components but very little on the GPU. I assume this isn't for gaming?

    A Corsair 450w would be enough btw.
  2. I appreciate your help but I don't understand how 450 is enough (that's not even mim recommend by my GPU) ? O.o and GPU I'll be upgrading later on ... because I already own that 5850 .. shortly I've been into rendering thing .. and for gaming that GPU is still pretty decent so that specs satisfies my demands :) but the thing is I'm also not so sure about this PSU... if 600 watt is enough ... because I'm on tight budget ... and yea I don't want to compromise with looks ^_^ btw if not am going for 800 corsair

    Looking up on that Zebronics PSU. Never heard of Zebronic either, not a good sign.
    Glows blue, doesn't mean its bad, but gimmicks like that are often used to sell bad units.
    No reviews anywhere for it, and what forum posts I have seen about it aren't good.
    On its product page, there is no information given about its rating, efficiency or any indication of 80+ Certification. Not a good sign.
    However, it does tell us amperage on the various rails. 24A on the 12V = 288W. This unit has no business being called 600W, cant even output half its advertised wattage. Much more likely this is a 300W unit with a 600W sticker slapped on it.

    I would advise you replace it. A good 650W unit from Corsair, Seasonic or XFX will do for the rig as it stands.

    :o seller told me it's a kick as* product ..only now I know what he means ... i'll never buy a kick ass product ... :non:
  5. btw thanks .. I'll replace this crap now .. thanks a lot .. btw I'm planing to buy corsair gs800 ..is it good
  6. It's good... but it's overkill for your setup.
    And upon checking, it got discontinued. Might be still available where you are though.
  7. It has decent reviews.

    Though you can probably get a better supply for the money.

    Though you dont need 800W. Even if you replaced the graphics card with a powerful modern card in Crossfire/SLI, you wouldnt need more than 750W. For a single card 600/650W is fine.
  8. Just get a corsair TX 650, it should be good enough. a lot of other good options too though
