When choosing a new one, all components should be considered, because hard drives, fans, add-on cards, and USB devices all add to the load on the PSU.

It's not getting enough juice and it won't boot into the bios My power supply is 500 watts and it runs an ati 4850 1gb just fine, and it boots perfectly. There seems to be some disagreement whether all video cards that have several different connectors available (VGA, HDMI and DVI) can be connected to two monitors at the same time. Yea I shouldn't even bother ahhaa, I used my 600 watt power supply today and it didn't work. How to make two (possibly far away) equations be numbered as subequations?

I'll try running both prime95 and Furmark (not at the same time) for 15mins and see what happens. If you're running a lot of electrical devices on a single circuit the breakers will usually trip above 1,800 watts -- computers usually run between 200 and 400 watts -- and It repeats. Make sure your motherboard has the correct slot to accept the graphics card.

Sensor error/bug maybe?Also, I've long planned about changing my PSU since all of the people I ask tell me to get a better one.
