what is the best power supply for a comp running Windows 7? I'm attempting to rebuild an old machine and I'm guessing that I might need to upgrade my power supply but I'm not sure.

Currently, I have an ezcool unit with 500w supply. Would that support Win7?

Please advise. Thank you.

I'm not sure. Em, it was running XP pro. Memory was...I don't know. certainly under 1gb. I haven't used the machine in some time and, currently, it's not running at all.

what power supply would you suggest?

anything made by seasonic i.e corsair,xfx or seasonic 550w.

if the system isn't running then I would suggest bench testing before buying anything.

If the PC is OEM (HP-Dell-etc.) post the complete Brand Name & Model Number.
If it's custom build, use Speccy tofind the info and post the Brand & Model of Mobo-CPU-RAM-Graphics-PSU.
The size of the PSU needed is dependent on the hardware it is required to power.
