Default Re: upgrading my computer

sunblockz you're going to do what most inexperienced builders do, scrimp on the power supply. It will come back to bite you on the butt real soon. The power draw for the card alone is not the only thing you have to pay attention to. The rest of the system will need sufficient power to operate as well. The Corsair BK and I suggest is one I use. I have 4 hard drives, one optical drive, mother board with 16 gigs of ram, 3.40 i5 cpu, and 4 120mm fans including the cpu fan. And still have plenty of power to spare for adding even more goodies. I planned ahead in that respect so the 159 price tag was minimal. And just think. If you build a system you'll already have a killer power supply so you don't have to buy another one.

It's an HP prebuilt micro atx. Your best bet is to cruise the HP site and find out if you have room in the box for a full sized power supply and a full sized video card.
