HELP: How many Harddrives?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
How many Harddrives can i hook up on a 400W Psu?
Im thinking of hooking up 2 200 Gig Seagates, i have alot of games from my old computer on these and i figured that it would spare me a lot of time.
But will i run out of power or what?

See my sig for system setup.

HELP VERY APPRECIATED!

That PSU should be enough for your sig rig, and then the extra 2 hard drives

USE THIS To help you figure out roughly how much power you use!
