Hi,

Im wondering what the difference between 300W, 350W, 410W, 500W, etc... power supplies.

How many hard drives, CD-ROMS, etc... can they run?

Many Thanks

Travis

The more wattage a power supply has, the more power it has. The amount of drives they can supply power to depends on how many SATA connectors (or ata depending on your systems hardware) the PSU has.

A very simple check on any combo you can check on is at NewEgg. Try some different configurations to see why there are different sized Ps's.
