    PSU RECOMMENDATIONS?

    I have an amd athlon x2 4200+
    x1950xt sapphire radeon
    2gb dual channel ddr2 533

    what would be a good psu to power this, I keep getting fps drops with my 300w power supply.

    x1950xt= POWER EATER HARD CORE.

    PSU RECOMMENDATIONS?

    I would probably go with any of the top brand units in the 550Watt to 600Watt range just to be safe.

    I find that brand doesn't matter so much as long as it has active PFC. Otherwise you get wierd fluctuations in the power and the ps dies faster. Most of the crap-tastic brands don't have it, so you eliminate the baddies by only getting a psu with active PFC. I think that Tazz is right about the wattage range. Here's a link to a good calculator: http://www.extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp
