if they watch porn then it will load to 100%% LOL. nahh he uses his pc for browsing internet and playing rf online which is not that demanding for gpu

by the way
his psu is from pentium 4 pc.. he'll swap it with his dual core pc..

i cant believe his e4500 has only 250 watts..

how about this?

btw, if he ended buying 8600gts. is 380 watts sufficient for the system?

they dont wanna buy for their pc to upgrade..

i have 2 500 watts apevia for 2 bfg 9600gt for two pcs. its still running without a problem for almost 3 years now
Power supplies are not "just power supplies". I mean, that 500W at Wal-Mart could be a disaster waiting to happen regardless if he's gaming or always just browsing the internet and doing e-mail. I wouldn't recommend that PSU even to my worst enemy.

So, it's not just about the PSU's wattage rating. It's more than that; it's about the +12V wattage capacity, the ripple suppression, and everything else concerning the quality of the specific unit in question. That's why I am recommending these:

400W Antec High Current Gamer

380W SeaSonic S12II

400W Antec Neo ECO

In other words, just because I am recommending a 380W SeaSonic S12II, it doesn't mean that I think that just any 380W would be enough; it's always about the specific unit in question. I mean, the SeaSonic S12II and the M12II series are significantly better than both that 500W Apevia and that 500W Coolmax.

The power supply is absolutely the most important part because the entire system is completely depending on it! If you were to build a new human being, then would you just go with any heart and say that "they're all the same"? Or, would you make sure that you used the best heart you could find? With PSUs, it's the same thing.
It's a computer!
