hi,
i have 250w ps. installed on my computer is a p41.7, 40gb hd, dvd drive, geforce4 ti 4400, sb live, 512ram. would the ps be able to handle a raid controller and a second 40gb hd? thanks in advance to any replies.

if it's a REALLY good brand it might, otherwise, maybe, but a 300/350w PSU definitely wouldn't hurt.

if the power supply is not enough, and i install the raid and hd, would it damage anything? because i don't want to spend 50 dollars on a power supply

if ur psu cant supply the juice ur comp probally wont boot, my 230 psu cant handle 2 HDs and the below parts, when i install a 2nd HD the comp will sometimes load, sometimes not (theres nout wrong with HD either). I dont think it wud do much or any damage but, i wud personally spend the money on the CPU (hmm $50 or $1000 a new comp which wud u choose?)
