Max out PSU

#2
only true way would be with a digimeter. Why not post your specs including all of your HDs, CD drives, video, ram, fans, PSU (wattage), and anything else important.

hmm... i'd say... *rubs chin*... 350-watt minimum... 400-watt if it's a generic psu.

If any voltage lines go too low, then you've maxed it out. Don't trust sensor readings though! Measure with a good volt meter.

Well for most systems I have heard of (even some of the more extreame ones) 350W will work, but even though they work some systems are probley stressing their PSU's which will shorten the life of the PSU, and can cause instability. The best rule of thumb is get the best and highest wattage you can afford.
