Im running an AMD 1700 (1400mhz) at 1.84ghz, with no problems with heat or instability.
I have a 350 watt PSU from antec, works fine.
Case temps are almost always below 50C, buti have 3 exhaust fans, 2 on back 1 on front with intakes on the sides along with the GPU and CPU internal fans.

Lots of cooling for me!

Yeah thats perfectly fine, vid card temps are usually bad when they hit 80 or so. Well not bad but thats in the "you better get some more fans or I'll kill myself" zone.

Matt95SSEi: That'* nothing, dude. I have 7 fans in my case! 2 exhaust on the rear. Two intake in the front, one intake on the side, and the PSU is an exhaust. Not to mention the CPU fan. It'* loud.. very loud.

is that the 6800 ultra.... because the 6800 ultra sucks up a ton of power and i wouldnt suggest anything less than 450 watts for anybody using the ultra

i just upgraded my PSU. I had a no name that came stock with my eMachine. I just installed yesterday a Tagan TG380. I love it. It has 22 amps on the +12 volt rail. Not bad for a lower end wattage fella. It has dual fans and all the other nice perks besides blue neon lights lol. I couldn't go bigger unless I got a bigger case. I had to loosen up my cd drive to be able to get the connector in place for it. It fits any standard size case. Here is the link at newegg only 56.50 USD:

Watts mean jack in the power supply world apparently. It'* the stability of the amperage, etc that matters. Antec'* good (great, actually) for that.

I've got one



And... I've got 9 fans. HA!
(and it'* not loud. not loud at all. no fan smaller than 80mm, as far as i know)

Repin is right. I had a generic 400watt, and the LED'* on my system never were really all that bright, but when I upgraded to the Antec PSU, the LED'* were much brighter, and my system actually wanted to boot [thought mobo problem]. You want something that usually is "True xxx watt" Or anything from a name brand. And Uncle Bob'* Name Brand isn't a name brand .
