  1. Guess you don't want my suggestion...
    I'll give it anyway.

    A 400 watt PSU or greater should work fine.

    Fortron and Antec are a couple of good PSU companies.

    I have an Antec TruePower 430watt and it is running
    Gigabyte 8KNXP Ultra-64
    Prescot 3200 CPU
    ATI X800XT-PE
    2-gig Corsair TwinXPro 2-2-2-5
    2x200GB Maxtor drives
    1x74GB Raptor
    Plextor 712 DVD Burner
    Floppy
    PCMCIA card reader

    And the sign says "You got to have a membership card to get inside" Huh
    So I got me a pen and paper And I made up my own little sign</pre><p></font color=red>
  2. BTW, if you are not upgrading and rig is working and stable, you probally do not need another PSU.

  3. its not stable, when i game it crashes almost always. But I think I found the problem. Its too hot in my case. I opened it and put a fan in front of it now it works great. I dont see how putting another smmall fan inside will help this rig at all. Its going to blow hot air around.
  4. haha - go make a Crashman forum or something. You aint getting my suggestion.
