I just finished builiding my new comp(using a 350 watt ps) and i am concerned that i may be pulling too much power. I currently have a cable modem, router, creative soundworks 5.1 receiver, monitor, printer, television, (plus the cpu) and a light using a 60 watt bulb all plugged into outlets within the same room( most are plugged into the surge protector) i checked my breaker and i have 15amps alotted for my living room and this bedroom( the ac is on a seperate 20 amp breaker) i currently do not plan to add anymore appliances/ electronics to this room. am i pulling too much power? is this bad for my comp/ other appliances? when i turn on the t.v., the lights in the room dim and my monitor flickers just a little bit. it only occurs for approx 1/2 second. i am concerned because my cpu voltage fluctuated b/t 1.4 and 1.5 volts. i did a search and could not come up with a definitive answer to these questions . any help would be greatly appreciated!
