    ok. buying a new comptuer. The case i'm getting comes with a 420 watt power supply with 3 or 4 80mm fans. It has 4 ports for 80mm fans in the front. I want to keep my case cool so i'm willing to spend 20 dollars on 4 fans and 5 dollars on 3 power splitters to run the fans. the fans i'm buying are


    12v each. I'm just wondering if my 420 watt power supply will have no problems running all my equipment. i know it can run the 4 origional fans and the extra 4 sand alone but a 3.2GHz processer, MoBo. DVD drive, hdd, ATI Graphics Card (AIW 9600), ect, ect. I'm just wondering if i should be a little bit worries here or if i should not worry about it.

    Depends on the manufacturer of the PS. you could run all that on a 300 Watt PS if it is made good.. In general I wouldnt worry about it to much if its new you should have no problems right now. Of course maybe you will need a new one in a year or so..LOL Really you shouldnt have a problem with 420Watt PS people get a little crazy with power supplies when 300Watt or more will run just about everything out there right now...
