256 ddr 2100 ram
nforce motherboard
sound blaster 512 pci
cd-rw cd drive
regualr cd driver
hard drive cooler
80 mm red led case fan
80 mm red led case fan
80 mm regular case fan
sound activated led bar light
on 2 of the fans i use converts from 4 to 3 pin

No you cant use two PSU's.

That is not entirly accurate, there is a way to use more than one power supply but it is pretty tricky. Check out some of the extreame moddification forums. I have read a few articles on people who have done it, but really I would say to get a proper PSU instead of a multiple setup.

... I would not suggest it which is why i didnt mention it, there is just no reason to do so with PSU hitting 400+ now.
especially since they are so cheap too!

CS-CKY: Even though your PS says 300w doesn't mean it really is. I had a 300w PS I replaced recently with a 330w antec and the antec ratings were WAY higher even though the Antec was rated only 30w more.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
