Besides, those were ATX 1.3 units, not suited for anything post-Pentium III.
EDIT: Though it does look like an ATX 1.3 would be good for that Barton system; I have one in mine.
Its not the 680w version though... its the "450w" version. I doubt that it could even do 150 if its freezing up this rig however.. I read somewere that these older rigs dont even use 80w sometimes...

I had a power hogging CPU (Pentium 4 overclocked to 3.5 GHz at 1.7V) and thought "if it can handle this, it can handle a new GPU as well". Well, I added an X1950 Pro graphics card, 3 weeks passed and the PSU went belly up and took out my motherboard and my 2x1GB memory sticks in the process.

This advice may also be unsolicited, but I just wanted to add my $0.02
Which, the gantry or my server?
