    Ok a question. I just realized that my my graphics card needs a 550 watt Power Supply and I have got a 480 watt. Do you think I could get away with using this or should I get another one that reaches the specification required for my graphics card?

    If it needs more than you are supplying then I guess that some parts of it may not run correctly without that extra power, so I suggest getting the correct power supply.

    Sorry, I know this is bad news, because it will probably take you even longer to have your new PC finished, but I think it's much better to be safe than sorry.

    Yea I was going to do that, because I've spent enough as it is I don't want to sped an extra load on something else. So I need a 550 watt or better power supply for about &#163;50-60.

    Iced what ever you do don't go buy a crappy cheap power supply, like say now you see a PSU that says it's got 650 watts and costs like &#163;30 don't buy it because it will weigh like a feather. And if you get a cheap and nasty one it will probably blow and that will cause your chip, mother board and ram to fry. So DON'T! buy cheap PSU. My PSU that I bought the 480 watt was about &#163;45. But unfortunately I need another one. Iced here is the link to my PSU, good make, feels really heavy and good price for what you get.

    So is running it as it is wtih 350W damaging the card now? hope its not, its says the card is at 50C and its still says it's in the 'cool' section...

    Please, sorry If I sound tardish, but where does that box go? is it a seperate unit? which goes outside the Computer unit?

    I don't know if it is damaging it, but it isn't the best way to treat your card by not giving it enough power that it needs to run fully operational.

    OK everything for my PC is right here next to me on my desk. But there is one problem. I don't have a case to put it in. So I'm looking for a case that my mother can buy in town on her way back from work

Started up TDU and I think I flooded my room with all the drooling over the graphics with High Resolution! x4 AA and HDR! And it runs perfectly! OMG WHO WANTS TO CRUISE!

    And had to take a screen shot!
