Default Is My power Supply to weak?

I dont know if it is or not but im just wondering if a 350 watt would be able to withstand 3 fans plus all my stuff. There hasnt been any signs but im just curious.

Cool Re: Is My power Supply to weak?

Those three fans draw about 9 watts total at the most(running wide open).I woudn't worry unless you just want to get a new psu.

not really...for a normal system with just a 6600gt it asks for 350w (so im assuming same for 6600). then hes got....3 more fans, sound card, and probably two drives and if ones a dvd-rw then thats likes 400w right there, the fans may be smal power users but it all adds up. i'd get 400w just to be safe
