Hi,I upgraded my computer about a year ago with a graphics card,new case and power supply.However I installed a cheap psu and I think it is on it's way out.I have decided to put another psu in it and have seen one that is rated at 600watts by OCZ but am not sure if 600 watts is enough for my pc.
This is my current set-up Mainboard : Asus P5N-MX
> Chipset : nVidia GeForce 7050
> Processor : Intel Pentium E2180 @ 2000 MHz
> Physical Memory : 4096 MB (2 x 2048 DDR2-SDRAM )
> Video Card : ATI Radeon HD 4600 Series
> Hard Disk : Hitachi (250 GB)
> DVD-Rom Drive : TSSTcorp CDDVDW SH-S203P
> Monitor Type : LG Electronics W2234 - 22 inches
> Network Card : MCP73 Ethernet
> Operating System : Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition 5.01.2600 Service Pack 3
> DirectX : Version 9.0c
I also run a printer from my pc.
Any advice is appreciated
