    That's not really a very good power supply. In general it's MUCH more important to get a decent PSU than any of the other components. Replace it as soon as you can.

    lookin at it now i think i might hav screwed up.

    under specs the supply says it dosent have a PCI-E connector does that mean it wont work with that card?

    is this a better option?antec PSU

    No, you can buy adapters that will turn normal molex power connectors into PCIe connectors (you will need to use one somehow though), but the fact that it doesn't already come with one means that it probably won't be able to handle that much power without bursting into flames. Do yourself a favour, don't use it, send it straight back and buy a proper power supply like this one

    OK my stuff wil be here today by 3pm.

    when i install the new PSU, i just unplug mine and all the connectors and reverse the porcess for the new one right?

    what about the card, do i install the drivers before i install the card or after?

    or should i install the psu and graphics card and then turn the thing on and install drivers?

    im just tryin to figure out what to expect.

    Turn on the PC before you put the new parts in and uninstall your old graphics driver.
    Plug everything in (and check you've done it right!) then power on the system and install the new drivers.

    Hi I'm interested in buying this comp http://www.circuitcity.com/ssm/HP-P...id/-12962/rpem/ccd/productDetail.do#prodspecs and I had a few questions about the video card. I cant seem to find any good info on it and I was wondering if it can do video output or input. I'm upgrading from a really crappy computer (800MHZ, 256MB ram) and I just wanted to know if I need to use my old Radeon 9250 just so I can run things onto my TV. I'm not much into high end games as I am into video editing. Thanks.

    Yes, and it's worth keeping the 9250 as it will also be more powerful than the integrated graphics on that PC.

    Yup, integrated graphics really are that bad. They needn't be, the technology exists to put something at least as powerful as the 9600XT integrated on a motherboard, but due to cost reasons it's never really been implemented. The 6150se is about the best the integrated graphics world has to offer, and that's a mere half the speed of a 6200TC, a very old card that was dirt cheap even when new.

    well i got mt PSU and graphics card today.
    they are installed and all i can say is HOLY CRAP!

    i ran UT3 jacked up all the way at 1680x1050 and it dosent even stutter. the card and PSU are extemely quiet and aside from a very tiny clearance issue with the heatsink and a couple capacitors on the motherboard it all fit perfectly.

    thanks again sam for pointing me in the right direction.
