  1. yeah i got like 3 years old system and want your opinion about it:
    intel celeron D 2.13ghz @ OC to 2.43 ghz
    Nvidia GeForce 7300GT 512MB(somewhy the shop said its 7600GT but what ever...)

    DIMM1: A-DATA SCNGC1916 512 MB PC3200 DDR SDRAM (3.0-3-3-8 @ 200 MHz) (2.5-3-3-7 @ 166 MHz)
    DIMM2: Apacer Tech. 77.G1136.9CG 1 GB PC3200 DDR SDRAM (3.0-4-4-8 @ 200 MHz) (2.5-3-3-7 @ 166 MHz) (2.0-3-3-6 @ 133 MHz)

    PSU came with my case; 230 W(where to look at Everest?)
    HDD ExcelStor technology J880 80GB , 7200RPM, Ultra-ATA/133
    mobo Biostar p4m80-m4
    Sound card integrated
    optical drive LITE-ON DVDRW LDW-811S (DVD+RW:8x/4x, DVD-RW:4x/2x, DVD-ROM:12x, CD:40x/24x/40x DVD+RW/DVD-RW)
    write here if you need any more information or i have not mentioned something else!
    (my case has a Fan that goes about 1061 RPM( got it from front to place near proccesor because of OC(tell me if that helps...)

    I don't know what you're asking :confused:

    Has your Power Supply Unit got enough power ? (I think that's what you are asking)

    Personally I'd have to say 230 Watts, is not enough, for what you have
    Try purchasing around 350 Watts

    But this system is very old anyway, I probably wouldn't spend any money on it.

    Edit:

    There's a huge thread on Power Supply concerns here: http://www.techspot.com/vb/showthread.php?p=719607#post719607
    That's got everything you would need to know on the subject (including Power Supply calculations for users systems)

    What are you wanting from us?

    Does the PC run without problems now? If so its enough.

    Were you looking to add new hardware? If so what?

    Kimsland is right, if you aren't having problems there is no reason to spend any money on that. If you are having problems, what lead you to determine its the PSU.
