Upgrading of PSU??
warriorheart Jan-19-01 04:01 PM
Hi! I am using a AMD ThunderBird 800 system and I have just read a bit abt such systems needing at least a 300W power supply unit. My present system is running with a 250W PSU and seems stable enough, though I may be adding in some more additional hardware such as cooling fans. Is there a need to upgrade to a higher PSU?? Is there any software to check the usuage of the PSU and how to check whether if system is underpowered? Pls advise. Thanks!
