I went here once. no one in the shop knew what a PSU with a PCI-E power connector was or had ever heard of one. The best VGA they had was a 9500GT (last April). so good luck.

They had actually heard of a genuine 400W+ PSU but didn't actually sell any. :P
Prices are a bit on the high side IMO. If you seriously don't wanna make a day trip to Colombo, this would be the place to go.

well i got my PSU about 1.5 years ago by them. the modle is silverteon SST-ST75ZF. i dont know about there stock h/w stuff but got my VGA XFX 5850 about a month ago by them. so you dont need luck for this just proper business talk i guess. im not recommending this shop just stateing my experiance with them.

lestat  just check all the shops and get the best deal.

Well I'm from kandy and let me explain about extreme,1stof all extreme parts are over prized.now for a week my psu is burned and I'm trying to find a psu.I called to extreme and they never even heard of a psu of 500w-650w range with separate pci-e vga power out.finally after a 15mins in phone they told me they can get me compaaq psu for around rs.15,000 (800w as they told)
It is sad that now for a week I cannot find a place in here to buy a good branded psu :( :(
(I will thank very much if someone from kandy help me to buy a good psu from kandy.I need around 500W with 28A in 12V rails,really really desperate now-can't live with dads celeron lappy  :( )

well for assembled pc's I always buy stuff from a small shop in peradeniya road named Orient Computer systems(well my uncle is a co-owner of this place :P :P ).Good warranty service and you can order heavy stuff if u want.prize is not bad.But for VGA's and psu's idk anywhere in kandy which is good place.they all sell 9800GT's as their best vga and loads of people never even heard about GTX or GTS series(idk about ati ones)

really idk why people like barclays,egs,and some good shops in unity starts their branches here,we do need some good pc shops here with reasonable prizes.

Ya, I've been here since 1995 and each time I have to buy a computer or have a warranty issue I have to wait till my next Colombo trip to sort it out.  I've seen a lot of used pc joints pop up recently but none of the "reputed" agents AFAIK.

I am from Kandy and there are two shops I would recommend.
Climax - I have assembled a couple of desktops from them and lots of my friends have used their services as well. Pretty decent place. I have known them since early 2000s as I remember and the owner has heled me bring down stuff that were not otherwise available in Kandy.
Orient Computer Systems - Small shop and not even many people in Kandy know this, but this shop has the stuff. And the owner is knowledgeable and helpful. It's located near Seethadevi school just before the Teleshop in Mulgampola junction.

There is also a branch of Techzone in Kandy City Center fyi.

EDIT: I Just realized this is a three year old thread
