So,a bigger PSU gets more out of C2D processor Excluding Graphics card right!

No in both questions. You do not get better performance but you get more stable performance with a stable rail wattage.

I would suggest this one HERE for 10 dollars more since it is 80 plus certified and another 100 watts.


Will their be cooling issue / Other issues??


If you have none now you won't have any then.


If Increasing PSU increases my overall performance and enables me to get a mid range graphics card i might as well upgrade PSU Instead adding another gig of Ram

Again you are talking to different issues.
PSU will enable stable power without fluctuations you may be getting from the load being put on your present PSU.
More memory is the single most way to increase the speed and capability to run more programs. It stops low memory, low virtual memory and normally will help increase boot time.

seems like a good buy


for just INR rs 500 more


300watts cannot really power up any ATI 5770 cards can it??


I guess for a mid range/Entry gaming rig 500 watts is a must

I wouldn't suggest anything less then a 500 with that card. It is the same one I have and I run a 750 watt PSU. I have a lot more in my system but I wanted to make sure i had the wattage for later upgrades.

The decision in the end is yours and there are others to choose from. :unsure: ;)
My opinion is a personal suggestion and is based on my experience alone. :)
Others have what they believe to be the best they recommend. ;)
The one thing we all agree on is get a good name brand and check the reviews well. :)
A cheaply made unit is not only useless but could cost you alot more in the end with your system catching fire or at the least shorting out other components. :) :yes: :) :) ;) :( :)

Hi again am confused



my UPs only supports 300Watts


so,what should I do purchase 500W and save $10 For UPS?


The PC has a DDR2 G33 motherboard so i guess it won`t last more than 2 Years


What should I do?



Also regarding connecting the PSU I have only one PC How do I go about fitting my



Also,My Current CPU has the wires properly done and circulation of air seems fine


Is their any Chance that because of insufficient heating my PC can catch fire?


Also What are the thing I have to look in the bill like Product number serial number etc?

Lot of theives out here may as well sell me a refurbised one I might not even know

HUH? a UPS for 10 dollars? A good APC UPS is going to cost you close to 100 dollars,


The PC has a DDR2 G33 motherboard so i guess it won`t last more than 2 Years

This all depends on what you use it for. I still have systems that use the old 128 pin dimm pin from 10 years ago.

;) :) :unsure: :yes:

If air flow is good then there should be no worry about a fire.

Also What are the thing I have to look in the bill like Product number serial number etc?

In post 17 I gave you a exact model and part number to check for on a PSU. :)

Sorry for so much trouble but its my first time don`t want my Parents to see me screw up..



You just have to make sure the dimensions of the new PSU meet the dimensions of the current PSU.
