  1. Okay so im not really familiar with computer things...I'm going to write according to cfitzarl's guide... My computer is a Dell Dimension E310.

    Well first of all, Im a pretty strong gamer...I play things such as Battlefield 2, COD4, Crysis, etc.
    Second, I would like it to be $300 maximum..

    Okay for the power supply, ill write alot of random things:
    Input: 100-120V ~ /6.5A, 50-60Hz
    200-240V ~ /4.0A

    Output: +5V-----------/ 19.0A -12V----, / 1.0 A
    230W Max +12V---------/ 14.0A +3.3V----/ 5.0A
    +5VFP-------/ 1.0A

    +5V & 3.3V---108W
    +5V & 3.3V---108W
    Lol thats basically what it said on that white sticker thingy xD
