  1. I always reccommend at least 350W, if not more for any current model AMD/Intel system. Why chance not having enough?
  2. 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:
  3. Thank you :)
  4. It depends on the validity of the 300W rating.
  5. I hate to sound ignorant, but I am......Can you explain what you mean?
  6. 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.

  7. Its an Enermax (sp?).....??

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

  9. 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
  10. 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.

  11. It is an MSI NVIDIA2 MX400 pro-TC64S :)
