I would suggest at least a 400 watt power supply as the amount of peripherals you are running will soon take up the 350 watt supply, but go for a 500w as the price difference is negligable.

I have an ATI radeon X1300 Low Profile 256mg PCIe graphic card for my Dell Optplex 620 (SFF) computer. I'm wondering about the power draw. The computer has only a 240 watt power supply. Will this tax...


Your computer should be able to handle the graphics card with no problem.
The only issue that comes up is how many hard drives or CD Rom drives are attached to the system.
If everything is stock out-of-the-box, you are OK.
I hope that this helps.

Fans run at full speed under normal task.


THE PROBLEM IS THAT THE CPU AND MB AND PSU IS NOT COOLING OFF ENOUGH AND CAUSING THE FAN TO RUN ON HIGH ALL THE TIME, THE PSU MAY NOT HAVE ENOUGH WATTS POWER TO RUN THE CONFIGURATION TO KEEP THE SYSTEM AND HARDWARE TO COOL.

I READ IT IN ONE OF MY PC MAGAZINE, ANOTHER PERSON UPRADED SYSTEM, ADDED SOME OTHER STUFF BUT THE MB AND POWER SUPPLY UNIT DIDNT HAVE ENOUGH WATTS TO SUPPORT BASIC REQUIREMENTS OPERATING THE SYSTEM BASIC NEEDS.
FIND SOFTWARE THAT KEEPS EYE ON HEAT ISSUES, MB, VIDEO CARD, RAM, PS, CPU, CPU COOLERS, NIC CARDS, SOUND CARDS,
ETC.
EACH PART REQUIRES SO MUCH POWER
AND HERE HOW IT BRAKE DOWN FOR EACH COMPONET

MB 20-35+ WATTS
CD ROM 20-25 WATTS
DVD 30-45 WATTS
DISK DRIVE 5 WATTS
HD 5-15 WATTS
STANDARD VIDEO VARD 5-15 WATTS
MEMORY 5 WATTS PER MB

NEW SYSTEMS WITH THE FOLLOWING STUFF IN IT FLOPPY DRIVE,CD-ROM, MB, 16MB RAM, REQUIRES A MIN. 150 WATTS OF POWER.

BUT I KNOW YOU MAY HAVE TOP OF THE LINE VIDEO CARD WITH GGR4 WITH 512MB
MEMORY, 2-8 GIG OF RAM, 23 INCH LCD MONITOR, 2 500GB HD, BLUETOOTH AND WIRELESS NETORK, AND WIFI CAPABILITIES,
NEW DUAL CORE CPU TOP LINE MOTHERBOARD, COOLED VIDEO CARD,RAM COOLER ALSO AND THIS SYSTEM POWER WATTAGE REQUIREMENTS MAYBE SOME WHERE AROUND 400-600 WATT, AND MOST OF THAT IS FOR THE SYSTEM RAM AND THE VIDEO RAM YOU ARE RUNNING
REMEMBER 5 WATTS PER 1 MEGABYTE OF
RAM
IT WILL ADD UP FAST BOY'S AND GAL'S

ROD

PS I HOPE I DIDNT BORE ANYONE,
IT MAY SAVE YOUR SYSTEM FROM BURNING UP.

check your power suplly
try to replace the power supply

is not necessary to replace the power supply with the original powersupply
replace with standart 350 watt power supply (or higher)


then if the problem is still exsist
check *********** board
try to replace the motherboard

replace it with
any socket 478 motherboard

if nothing change
try to replace the RAM module
replace it with any DDR RAM module

then the last one
if nothing change
you must replace your processor
with an 478 socket processor

Pc died


Hello, I have had similar problems with that same motherboard in the past and have found that resetting the cmos (see users manual) or just taking the battery of the motherboard for a few minutes can solve this. CAUTION please remove the power lead on your tower before touching any components inside, and earth yourself first by touching metal.. as static discharge kills pc components..
Hope this helps.....

Is the 350 watt power supply unit ok for EVGA Geforce 6800 graphics card ?


The big issue with a power supply unit rating is the total peak load that it has to deal with, which you calculate by adding all the rated loads of all the parts of your pc that are connected to it, and add yourself an extra 20% for luck. The motherboard, the HDD, the fans, the drives, USB devices, modem, and many more. If you have enough wattage left to accomodate your graphics card then it should be fine. If in doubt, for the cost it is always better to upgrade your power supply to a larger rated one, rather than overloading a smaller supply or causing low voltage problems with all your peripherals. Here is the link for your graphics card manual if you need it; http://www.evga.com/support/manuals/EVGA_GraphicsManual.pdf Check page 5 reference the supplemental power adaptor, and check your power supply has an connector for it. If you want to identify the power consumption ratings for each part of your pc, most will be written on the component somewhere, some in the manual, and some you have to guess by checking similar items ratings online. If you want help with this please post again and we can certainly try. Looking at the card, my guess is that a system that can justify such a nice card is likely to be pushing a 350w supply already, I'm guessing what your system could be like and I would put a 600w or more supply in it as soon as i had the cash to do so. post back all the details of your machine and i can figure it out if u like. This link takes you to some other interesting info about your graphics card. http://www.evga.com/support/knowledgebase/ Mostly a power supply that cannot deal with the demand will inform you by shutting down or committing suicide, although occasionally other components can be damaged by poor power supply, the chance is minimal with many newer items, and it should be worth trying. The fan performance of a power supply often governs how well it can deal with long periods of high load - give it a proper clean, and remember to check always that it is running. if you want, you can install another fan on the outside (blowing the same way), but unless you power it from a different source then you don't really help much. Instead of getting a larger power supply, you can just get another (perhaps from an old pc) and only use it to power the graphics card - best left outside the case for overheating reasons. Hope this all helps :)
