You are in fai shape on power . My opinion. What are you using computer for, I like the CPU. I'm buikding a PC now and am waiting for CPU (AMD Athlon 64X2 3800+) and 2 GB OZ Platinum Memory. Tracer action to UPS shows I'll get them tomorrow and I'll be able to finish and test the new rig. Hope to see a big improvement over my 3gb Intel rig (Sony).I said fair shape above because some PSU's are overated. Don't want you to be surprised.The figures above are close and ones that I lifted from various charts on the internet. Can't find an up to date chart so I improvised a little.
