Hi, i am planning, in the near future to get a new PSU but before then i am wanting to insert a DVD RW, i already have a DVDROM/CDRW but not a DVDRW so i am looking at buying one, i was wondering on how it woudl affect the PSU. I thought it would be allright with it but thought i would see what other people thought before i put it in.

Currently i have an x800GT (needing 300) an 80GB HDD and a DVDROM/CDRW currently connected to the PSU. I am assuming a DVDRW would be ok with the PSU.

Thanks in advance
Aidan

the link you provided is great however the graphics card choice is unfortunately limited to AGP whereas mine is a PCI-E. However not selecting a graphics card it tells me i need at least a 250 so i should be ok i think...
(yes i am planning on keeping my current drive in)

yeh that would be the best solution i suppose, thinking about it i probably wouldnt need to keep both drives in at the same drive would i, because it should recognise CD's etc that are put in that drive and should read them. Well if i get a DVD/RW/ROM. Anyway Thanks :)
