  1. CPU: AMD Opteron 8224 HE
    Motherboard: ECS Nettle2 1.0 MCP61PM-HM
    RAM: 240 pin, DDR2 SDRAM PC2-5300 MB/sec 667MHz 1024x2
    GPU: NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430
    PSU: Bestec ATX-250-12Z
    OS: Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 64-bit

    Soon I will be pushing my RAM to the maximum of 8GB(2GB x 4) so that I can take full advantage of my 64-bit system. Currently I am only running 2GB(1GB x 2) of RAM which is what my system came with, but the PSU that came with my system is already giving me problems. I have read several threads about my system and everyone has complained that the OEM PSU(Bestec ATX-250-12Z) is crap. Does anyone have a suggestion as to what brand, watt., etc., of PSU that I should replace the OEM one with?
