    Hey guys, i had a question on this PSU a cool case i found at newegg.com. It said 180W psu?...i thought 180 w would be crap ..i remember guys like WiG and ML tellin me to get a 350W AT LEAST!....so i went ahead and got a 500W for my hummingbird. The humming bired is way to big and clunky and well expensive to be carrying around to LAN parties. So i decided to make me a small lan 'puter. Not sure on the specs yet tho i found a cool case but look at the psu...

    Well I do say a quality 300w thanx but for the case and PSU ya shown you use a highly intergrated motherboard designed for use with lower output PSU's and other than a ROM, HDD and maybe a floppy and the very limited expansion capability of the motherboard these units work well in most cases for which they were designed but there are limits to what you'll get to work in them properly. For a quiet office PC or loungeroom PC they're great but don't expect to load a powerhouse into it. For a C3 or Celeron setup they're great but after that very becareful. :smokin:

    How big is your current PC? Is it even a full tower?

    Well, believe it or not, unless you have 6 5.25" bays you do not have a full tower, you have a mid-tower. And for your information I DO carry my full tower to lans, as well as my 19" monitor, and my laptop :D

    I see your point there Zeradul.... even though my case is extra heavy with all its fans, and the copper HS from the Volcano 7+ and the drives...but if i am gonna lag a heavy ass montor why even bother carrying a light system...might as well carry your beast with it.
