Now I need to get myself a new power supply and I really don't know anything when it comes to psu's. I recently built my new comp and just went with the crappy supply that came with the case, I knew it wasn't the best but i'm on a student budget so I didn't think too much of it.
Anyways the comp i have right now is:
--Athalon 64 3700 SD core
--Corsair Value Select 1024MB PC3200 DDR 400MHz Memory
--MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum nVidia Socket 939 Motherboard / Audio / PCI Express / USB 2.0 & Firewire / Serial ATA (M452-2808)
--Radeon X800 XL / 256MB GDDR3 / PCI Express / DVI / VGA / TV-Out / Video Card (C261-3028 R)
--Cd drive and a cd rw drive
If it's important there are lights on both of my case fans,
I think that's pretty much everything my comp would be drawing power from. I've done some reading around the internet but i'm still unsure about what kind of psu i should be getting. Some people have said that anything around 400-450 is fine, some have even said overkill for most systems, but others say that you might as well get a 600 or something crazy like that cause there's no harm in a little overhead.
I don't think my comp is particularly powerful so I can't imagine needing something to crazy but i don't want to undershoot it since i'm not positive. I'm looking for a solution that is relatively cost effective, around 100-130CDN.
Thanks for taking the time to read this.
