Could power supply be the culprit? - Page 2

ok, i left the comp on since monday and it just now cut off on its on. I tried to reboot it but it wouldnt ever stay on. I also went into the bios and just let it sit there...it cut off after about 30 seconds. Finally I got fed up and ran to bestbuy and bought the cheapest psu over 400w i could find (which was a crappy antec for $70) and plugged it in. Fired up first try and been running fine ever since. I then called the people at Sunbeam cause it had a 2 yr warranty on the psu, which luckily doesnt run out until May of this yr and they have a new one shipping to me as we speak. I must say, i think i got pretty lucky w/ this one since i didnt have to go through too much trial and error. Thanks for your help James!

Well, now ive got another little dilemma. After playing WoW for a little while w/ the new crappy Antec psu installed, my fps dropped down to like 15-20 when i usually get like 50-60 even in Outland. Could the old psu have hurt my graphics card or cpu, or could this be due to a possibly underpowered new psu?
