i've got a athlon 1800+, radeon 9500 pro, maxtor 7200 60gb hard disk, plannin to get a reasonable sound card, hav some other cards like modem, LAN. So how much watt is enough when shoppin for a new casing?
You'd be surprised at some of the PS that I see in some of the "cookie cutter" computers. Worked on a HP 4440 the other day (AMD 350MHz) with all the normal stuff and it had a whopping 100 Watt power supply in it! Also worked on an Emachines about 6 months ago with a 145 Watt PS, go figure! Anywho, a 300 runs both my NoCase computers fine. When NoCase Too was in the Aluminum case, it had dual hard drives and a CD burner.
Bottom line is that if money is no object, bigger is always better................:-)
