    there are even 1000W powersupplies out there, 500w is good, old computers have 200 or 300. 500 is good and will work with mostly anything.

    I think I have 650 on mine, I just had the case open, didn't check and don't remember.

    Got a hd4870 myself. phenom 9650, two hdd's, burner, 5 fans, tv card, etc..

    if your not going to get a top of the line high end pc with two or more cards 500w will be fine.

    Sergey is coming from the point of two cards, then you will need more than 500. if your going to run one card like me, 500 will do fine. with one card I don't see what could cause enought load to get a 750.

    lets not argue here sergey, read what the guy wrote, mid range. two card is already top of the line borderline extreme.

  • Ekse Jun 01, 2009

    I got 650 and there ain't a game this machine can't run. atleast I'm not aware of a game that wouldn't work on my machine and 650 works fine, computer works perfectly without any problems for days, even weeks or months If I cared to keep it powered on 24/7

No, 500 will not be enough, aim for either 550 or 750. Both are very stable PSU, I am running Seasonic 750w PSU. Also running crossfire Radeon HD4870 cards. If you have anything less that 650, you would not be able to run two vid cards efficiently.

If you're a gaming freak, and want to run a better video card in the future, 650+ is the way to go. Will save you money later.

Tricks on Building a Mid-Stream Gaming PC

With the <b>advancement </b>of<b> technology</b> in the world of today's <b>computers</b> <b>games</b> became more popular as a way of fun time and the past, not only teenagers but also to those who are stressed their work and life and I just wanted to sit down and release tension. However, because of this advanced technology, games, more and more these days are power hungry and most people think of playing your favorite computer game, they need a computer system superior range. In addition, to purchase a high-level computer system will cost a lot - a lot of money.<br /> <br /> But if you are a player who is on a tight budget but still wants to play <b>modern PC games</b>, you do not need expensive computer just to enjoy the game. Construction in mid-stream for the game system will pay for about half of the high-end system, but you can still enjoy the pleasures of modern features and games can offer. Here are some important tips pc game when building in<b> mid-stream</b><br /> <br /> Most people would think that the most important part of a PC for gaming is the processor or the graphics card, but when a gamer considers building a gaming rig, one should invest on his Power Supply Unit (PSU). This piece of device will supply all the power a computer needs to operate. If you will buy generic PSUs, most of them are not that reliable and their reported wattage are inaccurate leading to inadequate power supplied to the computer parts. Some also do not posses power surge protection, which is very important. When inadequate power is supplied to all other parts of the computer, it may not perform the way it should be and may lead to deterioration of the parts. Weak PSUs are also responsible for those sudden shutdowns when you are on the heat of battle. <br /> <br /> This is because when the game displays many sprites, graphics textures, the computer needs extra power in order to satisfy the game's needs, and when the PSU cannot provide such power, the computer shuts down, which could really **** the gamer. To avoid these circumstances and bring out the full potential of your rig, invest on good PSUs. HEC and Gigabyte are very good brands of computer PSU.<br /> <br /> Another point to consider is the processor. Many people still question that should be used for players to dual core (2 CPU), or quad-core (4 CPU). For many people, the Quad core is the best game because it contains 4 CPUs at the same time together. In fact, most modern games can not use more than 2 processors, so it's quad-core, 2 processor is in standby mode. So if you're on a tight budget, dual-core processor, a timing clock large (&gt; 1.8 GHz) is more than sufficient to meet the needs of the game.<br /> <br /> <b>RAM</b> (random access memory) is also important in games. This is where the computer loads all the files needed to run the game more RAM capacity, the smoother the game runs. For a platform game, at least 2 GB of RAM is sufficient to run most modern games. More than 2 GB of RAM dedicated to the game can be excessive and do not run background applications of many, you're just losing the extra memory.<br /> <br /> <b>Graphics card</b>. This unit handles all the graphical and better graphics, better quality of graphics in the game gives. But the high-end graphics cards are very expensive. So try to aim for mid-stream cards, which are much cheaper, but still can not deal with images of game options. Examples of excellent mid-stream cards ATI HD 4770, ATI HD 4850, <b>Nvidia Geforce GTX 260</b>, <b>Nvidia GeForce GTX 270</b><br /> <br /> Video graphics memory. Most people misinterpret this information. Most people think that the more video memory, the card is better. Well, that's wrong. A graphics card with at least 512 MB or 1 GB of video memory is more than enough to run modern games. You only need a high video memory if you intend to play the game on very high resolution 1920 x 1200. In search of a good graphics card to determine the card with the best capacity for representation and processing power instead of video memory.<br /> <br /> Last but not least, the operating system (OS). The operating system usually depends on the player, the program that you feel comfortable. But most of today's games will be released on modern operating system and no more operational support and play it safe, buy and install the latest operating system. Microsoft Windows 7 is the recommended operating system for today's game because of its compatibility and stability.<br /> These are the particulars of your mind, you can build your own system of game players in mid-stream on a tight budget. Enjoy playing!<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />

How do I fix Sims 3 skipping on my computer?

First verify your computer meets the minimum requirements to run the game. You can find this info on the game case or at If your computer does meet the minimum specifications, try updating your video card to the latest drivers. The easiest way to do this is to visit the website of your video card's manufacturer. If it is a recent problem and the game was performing well before, try uninstalling and reinstalling the game. It takes just one corrupt pattern layer to make the entire game drag. Turn down all game options to use minimum visual resources which can also speed up performance. If none of the above work, try contacting EA Games support.

Computer is not booting up. Usual blue light over power switch is red.

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

hope this will help

My computer is not turning on at all no light are power shown in da back?

The most common cause of this is a bad power supply. If you have access to a different psu try it to see if your system boots. If it does then you know you'll need to replace the psu on your computer. Make sure when purchasing a new power supply that you get one that will be capable of running all the hardware you are using. If you have a GTX 200 series video card you'll need a psu rated at minimum 550 watts. Hope this helps.

I have computer that works well when i am surfing internet but not when i play online games such as Grand Chase, Crossfire, Warcraft, etc. before i forget i have a video card installed. thanks in advance

The problem is most likely that you have a computer that isn't powerful enough to run the latest games. It's not only the video card that makes these games run. It's the amount of RAM and processor speed, along with a good video card. That is what makes games run.

Basic gaming specifications
At least a dual-core processor
Definitely over 1GB of RAM
A graphics card with 256MB of VRAM

Those specifications are the minimum required for the latest games to run.

Hope this helps.
Thanks. :)

8800GTX BSOD when starting games

The power supply is not powerful enough for your computer. You would need a new PSU I would recommend getting a good one from a company like FSP, PC Power and cooling, Silverstone, Xlcio, or OCZ. I am sure that this will fix your problem. I would also suggest that you follow the manufactures guide lines and get a PSU that is rated for at least 450W and supplies at least 30A on the 12V. The 30A rating on the 12V line would usually mean you would need to get a 550W PSU with one 12V rail. Keep in mind that those cards draw more power than most PSUs with multiple 12V rails can handle
