I have a 250 watt power suppily at the moment and it needs upgrading bad cause i have a geforce fx 5900 which needs about 350watts. So firstly is it a simple job fitting new power suppilys cause i just had the scare of my life this morning . I was trying to fix my old pc to sell it and there was no power . So i saw the the little pieces of metal which the plug, plugs onto was bent so i straghten it and plugs it in and BOOM the whole computer just goes up in a mass of smoke. So basicly i am S**Ting it cause i have a great computer worth alot and if it does the same i will jump down the stairs . Also should i go for a 400watt or 500watt does it make a diffrence .
