    Well, I don't know how accurate that is. I added up my hardware and it said my minimum PSU should be 370watt's, and I've been running this comp on a 250watt PSU all along. That Thermaltake Butterfly should provide more than enough power. : peace2: Mista K6
    Modified Dell 8200 Case:
    -400MHz FSB i850 Intel mobo
    -P4 Williamette Socket 478, 1.9GHz
    -768MB 16-bit PC800 RDRAM
    -MSI GF4 Ti4200 128MB @ 284/581
    -7200 RPM Maxtors: 60GB (2MB) on mobo and 160GB (8MB) on ATA/133 PCI Card
    -Creative Inspire T7700 7.1 Speaker System on an Audigy 2

    Well, waht kind of XP2600 do you have now? Usually Bart XP2600's with a 512k L2 Cache are great performers, and can o/c past 3200+ speeds. I think they are the best XP CPU's when taking overclocking into mind. : peace2: Mista K6

There are many good quality units to choose from, but I doubt you'll find a 650w peak rating on the higher powered models. In fact, you'll likely find that several manufacturers use their peak load ratings to sell their product line. Choose whatever power supply makes you happy.

    In regards to the cabling, however, you'll find they do indeed reach to the far corners of the larger cases. They are made to be used with the Thermaltake Xaser series enclosures, which are themselves Chieftec/UNEEC clones.

    To discover what sort of power levels you'll be running, try THIS LINK. While simplistic, it gives you a good idea as to what sort of power needs you'll be looking at.
    That link has just been added to my "PC building tools" folder.

    Thanks DT
    If the stuff in glow sticks is truly toxic then why do they make so many flavors?

    I have an Xp2600+ T'bred and it runs at 2.3GHz 24/7 but i do up the fsb now and again for 2.53GHz (both speeds way past an XP3200+).
