Recently I bought a system with foll. specs:
AMD Phenom 2 x4 965 black edition@3.4 ghz
corsair 2x2 gb ddr3@1333 mhz
ATI Radeon 5770 hd 1gb ddr5
samsung 22x sata dvd rw
ASUS M4A88TD V-EVO mobo .I bought a zebronics platinum 400w PSU.I want to know if it suffice or will it cause any major problems in near future as i will probably buy a cooler master psu in 2 months. There is only one 12v rail with 17A rating. Could anyone give me the actual wattage it could deliver.

I don't know anything about that psu but I do know that the 5770 requires a minimum 450 watt psu, I would recommend at least a 500-550 watt psu

Power supplies can be mounted either way in most cases, and I would go with the coolermaster 600 watt between those, for more room to upgrade.

CM 600w has only 70% efficiency whereas vx450 has 80% efficiency and also many say that vx450 is underrated and can deliver upto 550w without much trouble.Are Seasonic S12II520 or FSP saga II500w good alternatives.Thnx for ur speedy reply.

Dont put to much weight into those reviews, it may hit 550 watts, but not consistently and youll likely fry it. Have you looked at something like this? what is your price range?

I think I would still hit the CM personally the added wattage would be nice, but the corsair will work just fine, both are reputable brands and good quality.

Both Seasonic and FSP produce some very reliable PSUs. In fact, some Corsair PSUs are in fact, re-branded Seasonic PSUs.

With CM, it's more like a hit or miss scenario, wherein some models are known to be bad apples.

Unless you upgrade your computer very often, I would suggesting sticking to the 500~550W barrier and getting one that offers good efficiency.
