Default Re: 250W PS with a Radeon x700 Pro

He should get by with that 350watt PSU for that particular PC. If he had better hardware in there, then a bigger PSU would be better. I would personally go for a 400watt for the heck of it.

The one I want to get is 350W but can go up to 400W.

And for RAM, can I just pick up any card?

Download this program to see what your other RAM is running at:

http://www.lavalys.com/products/down...?pid=3&lang=en

It's a trial software, but it will tell you in the Computer Summary part about your RAM speed, such as PC3200, PC2700, etc. My RAM are PC3200's in dual channel.

Yup, that's what you need to get. Any RAM that is PC2700. That's DDR333.
