So, more parts on your PC means it needs more power right? because I have one 2GB RAM, a RADEON HD 4670, I can't be specific with the other parts, but I have a Gigabyte motherboard. What details am I missing?

Well the problem is, which I forgot to mention, is that my power supply is already broken. How can I know the other specs, brand names and the like without even opening it? is there a way? or is my last option is to borrow a power supply from a friend to finally get the info about my PC?

As PSUs are relatively inexpensive.

Why not remove the current one, look and see how it's rated and then buy one that is 50% more powerful

Okay, thanks a lot, mate.
