Hmm, having read this : http://www.guru3d.com/article/gigabyte- ... 0-review/8
It would seem I may need more watts for these new components... if the processor requires 90 watts, the card requires 500w and the mother board requires around 90w I think, does that mean I need 700w PSU? Do I require a modular PSU?
Another £80. It is very expensive this upgrading PC business....and I want a blu ray burner.
