    Default watts in a PSU?

    I think that question got lost in my last topic.... but anyone knows a tool or a easy way to figure what's the wattage of a PSU (mine, by the way, on my comoputer now) when it's not labelled anywhere in the unity itself? I want to upgrade my Video card to a 6600GT, and I know that it has a minimum power requirement of 350W. Im not sure if my PSU is a 300W or 350W. I used this site http://www.jscustompcs.com/power_supply/ to calculate my needs...and got 314W...but the question is : I don't know how many watts my power unity has! It's labeled only " ready for Pentium 4" and " manufactured in 2002" and has a P6 connector ( I think that one is used to power the new PCI-e cards). Am I safe?

    WHat are the rest of your components? And if tha PSU is over 3 years old, you may want to upgrade anyways. Plus, a 6600GT is very power hungry and 350W is barely sufficient to run it.
