What could a 240W power supply do?
That's why I want to know the exact power consumption of each component.
This is a HP 7800dc sff, CPU E8400, 4G DDR2 800Mhz(2 sticks).
I guess motherboard(Intel Q35 Express Chipset) consume about 40W or more, a harddisk and a DVD-RW each 20W, CPU 65W, and DDR2, USB...etc, that is well above the 120W limited, not mention to a PCI-X display card.
I wonder if the power supply could survive when any peripheral card added.
