New power supply

Post by Alcatraz on Sun 20 Sep 2009, 8:09 pm

So I know we have talked about it, but it honestly seems essential now. How would I go about getting a new power supply? Either that, or would I -need- to get/build a new comp?


This video card is extremely cash, but it keeps crashing WoW and other games due to the crappy power supply I am running.... so what would you think is the next plan of attack, J1NX?

My thoughts. It is not essential to build a completely new PC.

If it were me I'd look at a new case and new power supply. The essentials of said power supply depend on what connections your current one has (and I can't remember).

Cases can cost from $30/40 - $300. Power Supplies $45 - $250.

Most likely you'd be in the range of $60 case and $55 power supply, but that's just my immediate thoughts.

Alright. Also, I brought this up simply because of the video card issues happening again that it took me awhile to bug out last time.


Every time I log onto WoW it sits there for a moment, and then the video in the screen simply dies not sure if there is a video function in there menu I should click on to get things rolling or what.

Requesting an update. I did all sorts of black hat things to get your computer to the utmost for the time being. Did it do any good?

Also the folks gave me full control over buying your parts. Too bad the budget is only about $100. With words like "I trust you" and "Do whatever you think will help him" being thrown around....I could do all sorts of awesome stuff.
