Choosing a PSU

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

I'm having some difficulty in choosing which is the best PSU for me. Here are my options:

FSP SAGA II 500W - 55.4631 USD
Corsair CMPSU-430CX - 60.3882 USD
Antec VP450P - 66.3117 USD
FSP Blue Storm Pro 400W - 70.9706 USD
FSP Blue Storm Pro 500W - 82.0632 USD
TAGAN STONE ROCK MAX POWER 500W - 83.1725 USD
Corsair VX450W - 85.4132 USD

The reason for me changing my PSU is because I want to get a graphics card to upgrade my system and my current PSU does not have a PCI-E connector. Which of these PSUs would be worth it? I'm staying away from Cooler Master. Please note that these prices shown are not actually in the U.S. but rather in India and therefore this is what I have to work with. Thanks.

Ryan

The Corsair CX430 would work great.
