Hey, I am getting helped in another thread and was asked to ask for your guy's opinion. I was wondering if I need a new power supply, which I'm pretty sure I do, and how many watts are good for my computer. http://speccy.piriform.com/results/qKeydZoJSBQuH5tTaVtl1bK These are my specs, and this is my original post. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...p;#entry1939030

I am not sure how much it matters, but what is your exact Video card?

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

Another staff member suggested going to a 700watt power supply, but let me caution you the power ratings don't mean all that much. Stay with a good brand name,

The best ones are quite pricey
