Killing it softly??

Hi again,

I installed a Geforce 6800GT last week into my machine and after flicking through the forum I noticed you need a 350W PSU and after checking mine is only 200W does this mean my machine is either not getting the best out the card or is it just slowly cooking up a nice 6800 hog roast?

Cheers

David

What other components do you have in your computer?

You should get a new PSU right away. Using a 200W means that you will face frequent re-boots as there are probably too many components in your computer that combined want more juice than your PSU can supply.

I have a CD – rewriter, DVD drive, 2 hard disks, and 1 floppy drive all as standard.
I was thinking of getting a 600W PSU, as that will supply some of the fans I was going to get. Is there a lot of rewiring involved in changing PSU’s as I have 4 years guarantee and free upgrades in PCWorld and was thinking of getting them to do it as I have some annoying OS problems

Cheers

Get a new OCZ powerstream PSU it has adjustable rails and shuts down when under too much load which is very hard to do so it never kills itself. Really sweet PSU

Cables can be plugged in as needed.
