Hey guys,

I have two towers open in front of me and I'm transplanting parts from one to the other. My question is will my motherboard ignite or poop out on me lol?

-I switched out from a 2.8ghz pentium 4 cpu to a 3.0ghz pentium 4 cpu
-Changed graphics and sound cards
-About to add a 1terabyte SATA hardrive

The motherboard doesn't have a SATA port so I am using one of these SYBAUSA - SY-VIA-150 >> Combo IDE(1)/SATA(2) PCI Controller Card VIA VT6421A Chipset

I need to switch out the power supply because I don't have an adapter to connect the PS to the HDD. What should I be looking for in terms of voltage to see if my MB can handle it?

If it helps this is what I have: Bestec ATX-250-12Z PWR Supply 250w, Rev D1, HP P/N: 5187-1098 which was in my MS-6577 motherboard

This is what I want to switch it with: ISO 450W Power Supply which was powering an ASUS P4P800S motherboard.

I already see a problem...

I'd really appreciate any helpful advice. Thanks everyone.

Neither of those PSU's are good quality but either should power what you have listed. You just never know when low quality PSU's are going to fail and if they are going to damage other hardware when they do.
Mixing RAM brands/specs can cause problems also.
