    within my case, i have 3 extra fans, and thats pretty much all my extras i think. but i sometimes get some problems where i can't right click and such, and i think its a memory related problem which may... related to my psu. i have no idea. My psu was from a free soyo case that i bought from a large local computer store. it's supposedly "AMD certified" but i'm not sure. Should i buy a 400w psu just to be safe? or is my no name psu enough?

    A good quality PSU will prolly give more consistant voltages...compared to "generic" psu which can give bad small spikes making the voltages jump up and down.
    So a good psu is worth it...but buy your new psu and see if that is the problem if not you can always return it.

    A quality PSU will usually last a long time while the no name ones usually don't. ;)
