I am looking for a power supply for my new system. I will be using the Athlon XP 2100 CPU. Do you guys think a 300W power supply is good enough? What about for a P4 system? What do you guys think for future CPU's? I also will be suing a Geforce4 Ti4400 video card.

Thanks,
David

I use a 300 in my system and it works just fine. Cant really say yes or no for sure, it will work for now, but as for the future who knows. :)

300 will work for- 1 agp 4X vid, 1 HD, 1 CDrom. Any more than that and I would go bigger.

10 years ago 175W was state of the art. Power suplies are cheap and I would go 400w min if you expect to add anything.

whoops, after reading what Jamman said I double checked my system that I thought had the 300 in it and was wrong it does have a 400. Sorry about that, but the 300 would still work :rolleyes: for now, Id go 400 that way you don't have to worry about it.


...Who said I don't know when to admit I'm wrong?? :tongue2:
