Bare minumum for a 8800gt graphics card is 450 watts BUT seeing as you have a decent gaming rig in order to squeeze every last drop of performance out of your rig you are going to want to go for

700w+ Power supply.

this is so that under high power strain (gaming) your hardware still runs at full specification rather then decreased due to power shortage.

As a side note i would reccomend going for a reliable brand such as antec or arctic when purchasing power supplies for reliability. This is because if you get a cheap power supply you may come to regret it if it breaks. shor circuiting on a cheap power supply can kill the motherboard (personal experience) and that will cost a whole lot more than an extra 20 pounds for a decent PSU.

Hope that helps.

500 watts is enough but make it sure that the power supply is dual fan to avoid over heating.

How to make geforce6100pm-m2 read both memory slots


make sure your memory meets these guide lines.
? 2 x 240-pin DDR2 DIMM socket support up to 16 GB*
? * (Due to the DRAM maximum size is 2GB at present, the memory maximum size we have tested is 4GB)
? Dual-channel DDR2 memory architecture
? Support DDR2 800/667/533/400 DDR2 SDRAM
Due to the operating system limitation, the actual memory size may be less than 4GB for the reservation for system usage under Windows?32-bit OS.
For Windows?64-bit OS with 64-bit CPU, there is no such limitation
which means win xp will only read 2gig and win vist/7 will read 4g so if you have 2x 2gig and only 1 is registering its working fine with win xp.

Please tell me which type of support for D102GGC2 for 2gb ram i want extension ?


Your motherboard have the following specifications:
Two 240-pin DDR2 SDRAM Dual Inline Memory Module (DIMM) sockets
• Support for DDR2 533 MHz and DDR2 400 MHz DIMMs
• Support for up to 2 GB of system memory

So either get 1 2GB RAM DDR2 with 533 or 400 MHz. It is maximum for your motherboard or have 2 1 GB accordingly.

    Its easy to test your MB and CPU.
    Just remove all components from *********** board, like CD-ROM, DVD disk, HDD, FDD or any PCI or USB component.
    Add a speaker to *********** board.
    Add CPU, and without RAM.
    Now switch on, there must be along beep for RAM not found, if you don't get any beep it means your MB or CPU is faulty.
    In other case if you got the long beep, then switch off and add your RAM to MB and switch on again. Now you will get an ok beep. It means every thing is ok.
    Now attach your Keyboard and monitor and listen if you get the ok beep or not and also see the monitor there must be light on your screen and message to insert bootable disk.

    If every thing is passed ok, then add your HDD and boot.

    I think you can do the rest..
    Thanks
