Ok, I understand now that my 250w psu just won't cut it with my 900 Tbird as I have stability issues with my 2 x 64mb sticks when @133, which are rock solid @100mhz (99.9% sure the ram is fine).
So, my questions are:
1. How much wattage do I need - is 300w ok or would I be better with 350w?
2. Can anyone recommend a reasonably priced unit from a uk based site?
Cheers guys (and gals?) - you're the greatest!
BTW, system specs:
TB900@900(ATM), 2 x 133mhz 64mb ram, 30.6gb seagate barracuda 7200rpm UDMA66 hd, Creative MX DDR, SB Live Value, Ricoh CDR, Lite-On 52X CDROM, exhaust fan, 80mm front fan, Globalwin FOP32-1 (soon).
BTW (2) Just realised that this is in completely the wrong forum - SORRY!!!!!!!! - modification
300w should cut it. But if you think you might want a peltier later, better get a 430w now and save a few bucks later.
