Question about HP Computers & Internet
I just don't see how this is possible... either this PSU is way to small or this video card is a cheap low grade piece that I just spent way to much money on. I also here that if you replace your PSU with a larger one you can fry your motherboard in these PC's.
I have upgraded an eMachines PSU to a 400 watter with no problem
when I replace it's vid card with a ATI HD2400.
How can this PSU be big enough? and can I upgrade it if I wish to without frying my motherboard?
The maximum output of a PSU simply means it is able to supply a certain amount of power. It can also deliver anything under the wattage. Where you fry things is where the connectors are wrong. HP, COmpaq, Dell, IBM have all, at times, used nonstandard connectors in their PCs. If you take something with a standard connector, and use it in a machine where that connector needs to nonstandard, you can fry stuff.
