How can I find out how much power my computer uses. I need to know because I'm going to be installing a new graphics card and hard drive and I would like to know if I have the capability to do so.

Tigerdirect.com has a link, here, down near the bottom of the page is "The truth about power supplies" or something like that. Click on it and it give a list of how much power your computer components use so you can figure out how big a supply you need. Don't go cheap, I like Antec, but you get what you pay for. :thumbsup:
