  1. Hi
    What's the name of your power supply? I'll comment and explain the UPS once we are done with PSU
  2. Speaking of IQ.....how could someone answer your question when you haven't even told us what parts are in your computer? lol

    I deleted your previous thread because I thought it was daft, any reason why I shouldn't delete this one?
  4. Judging from your choice of video card, you are not much into games. So, you will only be using a Dual core or at most a tri-core CPU so power consumption is not really a big concern.

    As for a PSU, I'd recommend that you get at least a 500W one so that you will still have some room for upgrades. Don't worry about the unused power as your pc will only use up what it needs. A good 80plus certified PSU is highly recommended.

    With the UPS, 300Watts should be fine, but it can only let your PC run for around 3-7 minutes. I would recommend at least a 650VA or 1000VA. APC units are very reliable, but quite expensive. If you are on a tight budget, I would highly recommend FSP or FSP Group units instead. The company is very well known for producing high quality power supplies like the FSP Aurum (80Plus Gold certified).
  5. Pfffffffffffffffffff :pt1cable:
  6. Sorry, i did sent the last message to fast. What i wanted to say was : Pfffffffff :pt1cable: lucky for me i don't have the required I.Q. so i'm not allowed to answer.

    Click the link on my thread
  8. And again ; i'm so happy not to have an I.Q. of 140 or more and therefore not allowed to answer. When i click on your link i get this : The requested page was not found on this server. Probably just me beiing stupid. Huhuh, yeah, cool, yeah, huhuh. I'm going to take a walk on my knuckels now, bye. :bounce:
  9. I will paraphrase my original response to your 1st thread on this same issue.


    Depending on which site you refer to an IQ of 140+ is falls under very superior intelligence\near genius\genius. That is basically less than 2% of the total human population.

    Here's an example:

    I have never taken an IQ test before. I would guess it will probably be around 56. However a few shots of 18 year old Macallan Scotch should bring it up to around 75. Therefore, I will not provide an answer to your question.
  10. This kid thinks that back up battery can power his pc. ROFLCOPTER. This made my day. Bro, you need a power supply unit. Google that please.
  11. LOL ! Or try a windmill, i'm from Holland and we've got a lot of them here ! Sorry leogaz but with arrogant statements like "only people with an I.Q. of 140 . . .etc." you can expect reactions like this, you little Brainiac ! ( especially from dumb nuckelheads like me ) :kaola:
  12. You are not very smart as you don't know the difference between a psu and ups.. Try to google your question and see what you get.. I will guess your I.Q is like 50.
