I just finished building myself the following system:
Pentium 4 - 2.66 Ghz FSB 533
Soltek SL-85erv2 w/ built in Snd
512 DDR Ram PC-3200
ATI Radeon 9700 PRO
Sound Blaster Audigy
D-ling Lan Card 10/100
60 Gb Seagate V
52/24/52 LG Burner
16/48 LG DVD-Rom
300 Watt Power Suply..
I have it running Win XP Pro but for some reason it restarts a lot just out of the blue when i try to install stuff (not always the same stuff). I know it is not the ram as i checked it using another stick and the CPU temp does not exceed 45 C. Anyone have any clue why this is happening??
it sounds like a 300 watt supply might not be enough,
find someone who can test your power supply, or try looking in the bios screen on the pc health status, and then open and close your cd rom and see if the voltage drops alot. it is hard to know if you have enough power, so i suggest getting a really good power supply, it is worth the cost.
