How do i find out how many watts my power supply is...

There should be a label on the power supply itself specifying a power output rating or else you can look the model number up on the 'net :)

Don't want to??!!??!!
Are you trying to tell a die-hard community of tweakers that you have something better to do than crack open the case on your PC??

Yeah, OK.:crazy:

So tell us, what's it like having a life infielder6?

We would all enjoy living vicariously through you!:clap:

j/k dude!

C'mon man! Take the plunge.
And be sure to use that compressed air - it's fun!:thumb:

wow.. you guys are so mean... :mad: hahah... anyways.. i'm going to do that... i just wanted to know if i could do it from within the computer.. i mean in windows... that's all.. i take my computer apart all the time.. well not all the time but often... and it's really inconvenient to pull out all of the cables and open because of where it's located in my room sorry.. i can't show you so you can't really understand what i'm saying.. anyways... i'll be opening it later... :angry con
