Is a 300W Switching power supply enough for a AMD XP 2.+/ system?

More about : power

I always reccommend at least 350W, if not more for any current model AMD/Intel system. Why chance not having enough?

Not if you have a lot of HDs and a high-end videocard.

I love my Delta 60HP 7000 RPM fan that puts out more dB then CFM :eek:

It depends on the validity of the 300W rating.

He means that it depends of the quality of your PSU. A generic one can often be overrated while a good brand usely underrates his PSU.

That's a good brand... but I'm wondering, what is your exact hardware setup?

Its more what its "going" to be....I ordered AMD XP 2.4, ABIT NF7-S MB, another 512 PC2100 memory, a second Seagate harddrive but this one is SATA 80GB. I already have SoundBlaster Live!, and MSI MX400 (I think it is) AGP VIdeo, Ethernet. Going from Win98 to Win XP upgrade.

The parts should be here today

If it is a GeForce4 MX 300W Enermax should do... although you're getting close to the limit. If it is a Ti it wont be enough.
