i see so $295+10%{tax} $325 :P that makes more sense.
i don't know what the tax is were your at and or if you added it in.and ya i can make complete systems on paper for the $300 price point as well but their junk.


though using parts of that quality is well .you get what you pay-for .
my self i wont touch that kind of thing with a 10 foot pole.
you have to pay me to use that kind of hardware.

i hope your not still using the same no name brad psu that came with your case ? and i can get psu's with a 500watt sticker on em for like $10 us .probably less if you buy in bulk.but if you think its a 500watt :roll: and its not just that that really bad about $10 psu but anyways.some people don't care if their computer is unstable or dies after one year i guess.

btw its the switching transistors that pop in this video and a good psu has or should have a internal barker to turn the psu off if you try and over load it and or it over heats .
cheap ones don't and if they go Nuclear can start a fire \ burn your house down.

Corsair is over priced imho but that made a nice video that's more or less bang on topic.
i remember one review site the dude was a electronics guru and he would dismantle a psu in to little bits .
one of the places they like to get cheap on no name brand psu is the switching transistors .
there was this one no name brand psu with 10 amp switching transistors in it but on the outside the sticker was saying 20 amp.
what happens when you try and stuff 20 amps at a set voltage threw a part that was made at best to handle 10 amps.
i don't know. lets plug that 120 volt TV you have their in to a 220 volt outlet and see what happens

btw all ways nice to meet a old school computer user macuser .cheers :D

Power Supply Calculator
http://extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp
no name brand means -50% of rated power plus -2~3% for each year old the psu is minus some depending on ambient temp

no tax since it was bought online and the $230 does not include upgrades i made since i built it originally (like the graphics card and hard drive) and yes, I have just replaced the PSU :lol2: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=7227 this was all caused by a bad PSU and its all fine now.

glad to hear it but i ran some ball park numbers on the Power Supply Calculator and it ended up saying something along the lines of 300watts .thing is your cheapo video card didn't use much power and when you added and gt240 all that changed .
the cheap card maybe used like 20watts .
something like what im\your using atm 8800gtx\9800gtx+\gt240~250 {yes its all the same card more or less}
can pull in close to 100watts depending .
your lucky you didn't fry everything in your computer.
as well when a psu is on its way out all hell brakes lose and its sometimes hard to know what going on but i know my self the min i hear someone talk about global problems on computer "Y" and computer user "g" is using brand "X" generic $15 psu alarm bells go off in my head.

same deal with no name ram.their rated speed and what they can do is often times a lie and and have to manually configure the ram timings in the bios and more or less slow the ram down and or maybe over volt a little to make it stable.

cpu fine no problems their .so its the value chip whatever so is mine .e5200 2500mgz~3915mgz 1.4{bios} after vdrop 1.36v {tested 4300mgz 1.5v}

cheap cases are np .whats the worse that can happen .a plastic part brakes ? whatever .

$40 mobos .
whatever should work fine but expect driver\firmware support to be jack as well as the integrated components to be lame but should do what their meant to ..err more often then not but you get what you pay for .capacitors will probably pop down the road but that takes some time for it to happen.
at lest its not like he psu were all hell brakes lose with lighting bolts flying around the inside of your pc case when it pops.

cheapo hdds .maybe theirs a resion why model "X" is in the bargain bin .id research before buying my self .who knows maybe the make and model has known problems along the lines of the drives die all over the place\bad sector city after 6 mounts of use kind of deal.

btw i read you this on the other post you linked to .cant help but comment on it.

Besides there is a law (not government law, but like newtons 3rd law) that states "software cannot damage hardware" (not including over-clocking which i do NOT do)
incorrect. :lecture:
with windows remote desktop and or a trojan\rootkit that gives me 100% control of a computer and or if i was working on a computer i could brake the computer on all most all levels by using software and or software could be made to do the same thing if some one clicked on the 20k .exe
and i can overclock your computer from your desktop as well with out restarting the computer \ going in to the bios settings the old fashion way with the right kind of software.

you see all most everything in the computer has firmware in it .

dvd\cd rom drives have 1k bios\firmware and by forcing a grabbed flash in to the eeprom the device in question dousen't work anymore and because the firmware in question is a different version for different hardware many flashing apps wont allow you to re-flash in the after math .simply put i flash in garbage.

this can be done to most computer hardware in the pc \lan card\sound card\dvd~cd burner\motherboard\video card etc.
as well many computer bios settings can be messed with from a windows \ os level and changing something in their to a setting you know will fry hardware well you know what im saying.
worse still is some one could flash trash firmware in to hardware that trys to make the hardware in question do something that will permanently damage the hardware besides the fact that trying to re-flash in the after math is a bitch some times and the eeprom on many motherboards now is not removable .it use to be on older mobos\hardwere

Image

imho bios setting should be locked out from any os\software and or it shouldn't be possible to flash any hardware firmware with out changing a dip switch or jumper before hand .as well all bios settings should be only stored in a dedicated ram chip for the hardware in question.bios settings should be in read only mode.
once the jumper is on protect mode the bios & cmos settings and eeprom imho should become like rom memory but that's just me.
and imho flashing should only be done in true dos\command line in a single task os environment.

good one micro $oft this ones for you.

IE is worse then that but whatever and im not trying to say lets all go use Firefox.theirs many browsers out their to pick from but IE got to be the biggest pos ever.windows media player not much better.
that topic is doing the rounds on the net atm and the place i linked too isn't the best .
buddy hard to understand in the video but im shore you can find out more if you search for it .
as for internet explorer that's nothing new .its well know that its a piece of junk and micro soft just doesn't care.

long story short on the IE topic block the thing in your firewall and kill active x\nurf java and use a different web browser.
sadly micro soft doesn't allow people to uninstall the piece of garbage claiming in the anti trust {us vs micro soft} deal that its part of the windows OS and not a web browser.that argument didn't work out in the anti trust case in the UK but did in the end in the us seeing as when everything was said and done in the highest court in the land {usa} the hole thing was shot down and micro soft got to walk away from it all Scot free.the move in question was to split the company in two .one for the os and one for apps .sadly it never happened.

btw im a gray hat. i don't practice the dark side of the force so don't worry i don't do this kind of thing\get off on braking computers.i fix computers i don't get off trying to make crap head virus's or whatever to brake em .and im use to playing defense on this topic not offense.but at end end of the day offense is defense and defense is offense if you know what i mean once you hit a certain level a computer understanding.
with windows remote desktop and or a trojan\rootkit that gives me 100% control of a computer and or if i was working on a computer i could brake the computer on all most all levels by using software and or software could be made to do the same thing if some one clicked on the 20k .exe
