I have been thinking about getting a new power supply for a while as the one i got is 300watt and I put in a ati radeon hd4670 card which i found out it requires 400watt. I'm worried if i play some demanding game it will blow up my computer or something heres the specs for my computer http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/R/1009484/1009484sp3.sh... also besides using a different video card then listed there i also have an extra 1/2gb of ram if that makes any difference. They list the specs for the power supply componets here http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/R/1009484/1009484cl2.sh... but the problem is theres 3 different ones so i dont know exactly which one i have but anyways i was thinking of buying this power supply http://www.compusa.com/applications/SearchTools/item-de... like i said i dont really know what the heck im doing so any help would be appreciated

Google a power supply calculator to find out how much power do you really need.
Then look for a good power supply. I don't think the good ones are that cheap though.
I have a Fortron bluestorm and it has been solid for about 4 years now, but there are other good brands like Corsair, Antec etc.
