I was told my Prescott 2.9 Ghz with a gig of DDR and 2 hdd _2 optical drives needed less than 400 watts! Sure!

I ran a 3.2Ghz Prescott on 300w with water cooling and at the time a pretty beefy 9800pro... It was a Chieftec PSU which weighed (ho-ho) half a ton.... It shows that quality not quantity matters... My new system runs fine on a 580w PSU (Quad core 4 hard drives 8600GT etc....)...
I have been programming on computers since the ZX81.
I am an apprentice trained Electronics Engineer with qualifications to back it up.
I have been repairing computers since 1996.
Yet to some people I still know nothing...
