maybe for your experiment you can test how much power a PSU can take before it blows up?
that actually made me laugh a little bit.

anyway, i have an idea. does ram really affect gaming, fps wise? i have 1gb now, so i want to see if adding another 1gb would increase fps or regular computer use. i would do some benchmark tests and see what happens.
