Hello everyone, just wanted some info on power supplies.
A friend of mine claims that his PSU, in his ancient 350MHz computer can also be used to power the hi-end computer systems some of you have, and most of us want or plan on building.
From what I've read, heard, etc. most people recommend at least 350W for systems over 1GHz.
Then you've got more hardcore users with faster procesors, more hi-tech components, etc. that are getting 400-450W.
Now, we're not sure how much wattage he has...but I think it's safe to assume that he does not have a 350W PSU in his ancient system.
So what's the deal? Do the hi-end systems, especially ones that are overclocked actually need the extra wattage? Let's dispell some of these myths.
