    Is 450W power supply sufficient for the following ?
    Intel Dragontail Peak DP35DPM motherboard
    Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 2.66 Mhz
    Samsung 2GB DDR2
    WD 320GB/7200/16MB SATA II
    Nvidia 8400GS 256MB
    LG x18 SATA DVD
    Vista Home Premium 32
    ( Samsung 226BW Monitor )
    Does the addition of extra fans affect this at all , or is this negligible ?

    All 450 watt power supplys are not created equal. What is the make and model of the unit you are considering?

    Win2kpro , thanks for the reply . I already have the unit - not sure what PSU , but it comes with the case - a HEC Midi ATX CI 6A19 . Was told this would be quite OK , but wanted to hear from the experts . This PC not for gaming .

    Is this the case...http://www.techwarelabs.com/reviews/cases/compucase_tower/
    I have never been a big fan of Psu's supplied with cases...I equate the psu to the heart of the system...If you buy a good one you will have less chance of a problem and it will last thru future upgrades...Run a cheaper so/so psu and your taking your chances it will blow and take other components with it :(

    yeah i agree with accat13, psu is one of, if not the most important componant, get a good decent psu to last you years, i recommend a thermaltake. 500watts + to run your pc without any problems, and is future proof for any future upgrades.
