Always get a little more, than the wattage you are advised to get.

Okay, but get this. I already have a little more.

Yeah.. the box says 400w min, and the evga site says 350w. So the box I guess is reccomended min, and the site is bare min? Either way, I think ill get a new one.

Oh well, with that I mind, and a convo with Alvino, im going to retry it.

Get a 450W. What rakedog told me is suprising. I always thought a system would suck more wattatge, the more recent it was

I will, when I get my next one. Might be a few days before I order though.

It depends what you're using. nVIDIA has always been light on the power, in contrast to ATI's power sucking.

If you have the money, i'd personally suggust this one:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817103464

been going pretty solid for a couple months now... my knowledge regarding PSUs is quite limited, but I can tell the difference between a bad one and a good one, and this one is definatly working pretty good.

The Whisper II series is okay. I like Enermax's Noisetaker/II and Liberty series better.
