that pc has officially died. I have a very very old machine hooked to my tv for now. I can't game, but I can log in to ride around and fix peoples issues, and thats all the fun anyways Smile

I'd recommend getting at least 650W psu, maybe even up to 800W depending on your rig, and your video card.

What's the rig?
Specs, GPU, processor?

A decent PSU can be pretty easy to come by provided you aren't running duel cards.

from what i can see (i didnt build it) its a 3.0 ghz intel machine from compaq that someone swapped 8gb memory into, a radeon 6670 (pre hdmi) and a ssd. has a stock 350w psu, and the card calls for 400w+ from what i could google. idk. nothing special, but i loved being able to play on high setting and get 22 fps Sad

(i know it sounds like a small amount but this machine gets 5-8 haha) id use this power supply but this is one of those microtower things.

The 6670 originally needed a 400w PSU but that was due to really bad PSU efficiency, a 350 or even a 300 would probably work fine, provided you aren't plugging in too many drives.


If you don't mind a bit of a hack-job you could always do one of the following;

Take the 6670 out of the old machine and plug it into the current machine, though you may not be able to put the top back on.

(also, hijacking as much ram as you can from the old system.. any gain is a good gain)

OR

Take the 'compact' psu from the microatx tower and jerry rig it to the old machine.
The compact desktop system will be more than capable of running the tower PC, it might just get a bit ugly with the PSU floating on top or inside.


Another option is to find an old broken machine and boost the PSU from it..  you'd be surprised how many people nerf computers just because the hard drive failed or they just upgraded and didn't know what to do with the old one.

You can find free shit like this all the time.. best score so far was a Alienware x51 r2 that I ended up selling on eBay for over $700
