This won't be a gaming machine so I don't intend to put another graphics card in other than the on board graphics of the motherboard. I've been burnt with a rubbish insufficient power supply and have been looking at the following two PSUs:
I'm bearing in mind here that I've already tried two PSUs in this build; one rated at 450w (17A on 12V) which wouldn't even allow the system to POST and another rated at 500w with I think 24A on 12V that crashed after around 2 minutes of uptime in Windows XP. So I'm erring on the safe side.
