I Have just recently bought a new motherboard (click link) click here so that i can upgrade to a new PCI graphics card and still keep my P4 Prescot chip.
The problem im having is that im planning on shelling out some big bucks for the new Radeon X1900XTX (which im told is very resource hungry?!).
Obviously im gonna need a better power suplly then my current 350w one. The thing is im not sure what one to get or if it would be safe to use a 450w/500w power supply on the new motherboard i just bought?
I Dont wanna go sticking a big ol' power supply in it if its gonna overpower the chip or my new board?
The power supply doesnt feed more than is needed for each device,so you will be ok. Dont get a cheap psu though,as they are not as stable as the better known brands,and end up being as useful as a 250W. click here there are more if you click the links to them
In your professional opinion which is the best PSU make? i dont wanna buy a cheapo one, i mean if im gonna shell out the best part of 450 quid for a graphics card im not gonnna skimp on an odd extra 20 quid here or ther for a better psu.
