Default PC Power and Cooling Power Supplies

hey guys..
just starting to build my new system.
Need to get a good power supply here in india.
Can get one from the states but i want warranty and support on something this critical.
Now i know that pc power and cooling are the best manufacturers there are in terms of reliability.
Anyone know if they are available here in india ?
Am currently using a antec True Power Trio 650. But this will not cut it for the system i have in mind.
Have thought about antec quattro 850 and 1000 watts as well but would love to get PC power and cooling.
Thanks in advance guys

You can get Tagans and Seventeams in India. The quattros are also pretty nice but quite over priced. PC Power and Cooling is not sold AFAIK and in any case though the TurboCools are nice, they are very very loud. What system are you planning to build?

I got my 1200 watter Thermaltake from the US as the PSU scene is really bad in India. If you have an option, just do the same. This particular TT is highly recommended everywhere. For me, Its been working fine for the last 8-9 months, running a highly overclocked CPU, dual 8800 Ultras, 6 hard drives, a truckload of fans, water cooling and various other peripherals without a sweat. It never sounds loud either.

i know bro moralfiber have been watching that thread with interest
my needs are different.
Im building a audio workstation which i will use for gaming as well.
right now i have a AbitIp-35pro MB and a Q6600 running stable at 2.7 on stock cooling.
Had to buy the system here as my old MB died. Had the Asus A8n32SLi-deluxe.
Just bought this system 3 days ago and havent played around much but its running stable at 2.7 ghz on this **** ram i had to buy here.
i love corsair but too expensive here in india. Have 4 Gb Corsair Dominator series DDR 2 @1066 comming for this machine as well. I refuse to run on this ram hehehehe.
Besides this is just a temp system for 1 month.
Have a whole new system coming from the states thats what i am preparing for.
Thats why i need a mad power supply .
1800 Mhz ddr 3- 4Gb
Intel Qx9650 Quad extreme.
X48 MB. Will be asus (am a die hard fan) P5E3 Premium.
Lots of Hdd's. Like 4 1TB's and 2 WD raptor 10k Rpm drives.
2 Nvdia 9800 if they are out by then or 2 x Ati 3870x2 Cards.
Choice of MB will also depend on my GPU selection.
Will need a Nvidia MB for SLI and a Intel for Crossfire.
Why i want a Pc power and Colling is because this machine is going to run 24/7 and needs to be Rock Solid.
And stability starts at the Power supply and for that PC Power and Cooling is No 1.
Please help guys.
Thanx a lot in advance

If you get an X48 board, you are limited to ATi Crossfire. SLi needs an NVidia chipset board. Also as of now, 2x 3870X2 cards can't work in crossfire so take your decisions after a bit of thinking cos thats a lot of money you are planning to spend.

hey bro... as of now they cant work in crossfire .. i know.. but there are already beta drivers out that will let you run 2 of the 3870x2 in crossfire
also official support and drivers are expected in march in anycase
so yes i can run 3870x2's in crossifire even today.
Anandtech had just done the same as well.
also i did mention above that choice of MB will depend on my choice of GPU.
thats the only thing thats holding me back.
everything else is bought and ready.
thanks for the help guys
