Those kind of power supply must be for huge servers with multiple drives.
I bet there is no such power hugry GPU for home use accessible in general market.

Btw smps in market are rated 100 to 200 percent higher what they are capable off.
just saying because I have designed some for myself .

Nope, there are many, MANY resource-hungry cards. Also, many people have multi-GPU setups, overclocked processors or both.

That's why cheap ones like iBall, intex and the likes are never suggested in a 'good' system.

please get a better smps.

check for 80plus certified smps to start with.

even a 350w 80 plus certified should suffice.

Please help me find one in a mid range.Also 450W it should be.
when i was searching in the market there were a few 80plus certified budget smps.

some among them were FSP saga II 350(1.5k) and 550w

then there were some from gigabyte superb 460w (2k) and above

some other manufacturers know for better quality are corsair, seasonic and antec.

i would avoid cooler master because there is a lot of confusion among the productline since the cheaper ones will do more harm than benefit you and the pricing is not at all distinguished among the premium ones.

you will need to search them or call folks like smcinternational , prime abgb, deltapage.

ebay could be an option but you need to check some reviews about those specific ones before investing your money in it.

Forgot to mention, check the listings on flipkart.
You can order them from the earlier shops mentioned only if they provide a better deal than fk.

What's your rest of configuration? How many HDDs, CPU etc? [:)]
You shouldn't have purchased Zebronics' PSU. As I posted earlier, they are crappy. Check this: Power supply blacklist thread for newbies

I would suggest atleast 400W from a reputed company to be on safer side. [;)]

They say it bulldozer because that's the name of CPU's architecture. Don't expect a real JCB. :lol!: [/funny]
Anyways, Go for a 450W or a 500W atleast. I trust Corsairs, Antecs and Seasonics. [;)] All the best with your purchase.

And congratulations on the graphics card. Enjoy gaming.

PS: Tenida will be the best person on this forum to ask anything about computers. Just my opinion.
