Ordered a new Graphics card - Sapphire Radeon X1600 AGP - Just thought will I need to replace the PSU as well. It's a 300W unit I think.
Yes ideally you should get at least a 400W PSU but go for something more powerful even a 500W would prove better. Plus 500W PSUs are often easier to get and there seems to be more of a range.
Excuse the pun...........but does size matter.Do PSU's come in different sizes or are they all the same.Novice as you can tell.
Most are the Same but if it's com from like Toshiba Mesh etc it may need one from maker

As far as I'm aware, Mesh use standard ATX PSU's. Now some DELL PC's can definitely be a problem (I speak from experience here)!
i woudl get at least a 500 watt psu click here this one is modular and has power control as well
I'd try the new card first and see if it's stable running games or 3D benchmarks. You may find if your current psu is of decent quality it will cope.If it starts crashing / rebooting, then try a beefier psu.
Yes, you will. Don't even consider that your existing 300W PSU will cope with this new graphics card and all the other bits you (presumably) have in your PC.Creature of the Nite and madboy33©® are correct.Buy a 450 Watt (minimum) PSU and enjoy the freedom from worry that your glitches are caused by inadequate power!
Thanks for the advice good people.I'm off to Maplins or Savastore(both in Luton)to get a new one.
This is one good thing that PCworld Sell I got one from there a 500watt Jeantech I think it as 2 years warranty
