    Motherboard:
    Gigabyte GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1155 - GA-HA65M-UD3H-B3 (rev. 1.0) Rs. 5500/-

    Alright whatever your friend needs,You said you need a case with front USB 3.0 and bottom psu mounting one so both the above cases have that.If you want basic case then you won't get USB 3.0 or Bottom PSU.

    Hey is the VS350 that bad? It is cheap mainly because it is a region based psu supporting only 240V and they might be using some ow quality caps etc to make it cheaper??

    The Corsair VS series built quality hasn't been up to the mark as VX/CX V2,So avoid the VS350 and go with FSP SagaII 400W OR Corsair CX430V2.

    Yes, in-fact here is the forum(s) incriminating the VS and the newer batches of CX series SMPS.

    Fake SAMXON cap in Corsair PSU? - Badcaps Forums / Would Corsair have caught bad caps or coils in their RMA process?.

    Hope this dispels any doubts about how the price is being dropped to such lows.

    FSP is a OEM and thus has the option of pricing its products so low because other companies buy their designs OR ask them to fabricate a certain line of SMPS and that is where their main revenue is from.
