300watts peak max on a LOAD. If you hear your fan and its VERY loud it means its Going to Explode lol. IT cannot handle a High Power need.

the only time i hear any noise from it, is when i start the computer, on a hot day.. when its like.. over 80 deg. cuz i dont keep the ac on when im not home. but turning the 8800gs fan to 100% and my case fan to 100% gets it down to around 55 in a minute or 2.

i am not scared i only have 2 things plugged into mobo besides the processor an card.. lightscribe drive(absolutely worthless. my 2nd drive since i got the comp. cuz the lightscribe material.. melts.. and kills your lens.) and the Sata2 drive,(very low power consumption..)

the only time a psu exploded on me. was my old 386.. and it was a 50w psu.. or somehtin like that.. haha(that was forever ago.) i added 2 more mbs of ram, to equal 8 to upgrade to windows 95.. hhaah

It's hard to help you if you don't give us accurate info.


Well, with 18amps and a low-end CPU and GPU (that really don't use a lot of power) you should save your money on a PSU and just use what you have. Unless you plan on upgrading something else or overclocking your CPU and GPU. Like you said, your system is running fine.

And the noise is from the CPU running at 100% for a few seconds. That's normal for OEM computers.

its not really low end.. its #1 on the market for price to performance Ratio..
but if u mean low end, by not alot of power usage then ya.

i played crysis today, on very high, with barely little OC, and got 60fps on 1024x768 (no motion blur and no AA)(motion blur makes me dizzy.)

I figured you would be fine. Glad you are.

Though, you are at OCN. So if you decide to start overclocking your CPU you prbly will need to upgrade your PSU. Until then, have fun.

I'd imagine your PSU is being overworked right now

Even though it's working fine right now, it probably won't a few months later.
I know someone who ran an 8800GT on a 250W and it blew in 2 months (The PSU and the card and a few other components)

Of course, an 8800GT draws twice the power, so I guess your PSU will last. I can't imagine how loud the fan is though
