you would just have to search around on the internet.. they have a few articals on how much of each card you could put in ur computer takes up in wattage..

 

and u just add all your cards together..

 

and thats about a rough estimate..

 

I cant think of anysites right now I just woken up.. but If i do will replay back..

Dude,

 

Im not quite sure yet, Im still in the process of checking everything out. The only thing [email protected] is Certain @ the moment is [email protected] im gonna make like nike and do it. What is certain is [email protected] its a MSI K7T266 Pro2 RU with AMD !800+ 512MB 2 Maxtor 40Gig HDs Asus V7700 GF2 GTS Deluxe SB Live Silverado Noise Control Cooler, DVD Rom ,CD-RW, ZIP and floppy drives.

 

What I want 2 add is 3 Fans, 2 Neons and a . load of paint, glass and possibly a Mechanical CPU Tachometer.

 

What I dont no I want 2 add yet cant B taken in2 account, but I dont want 2 not have enuff power when I do cause I only got a 250W PSU right now and Im sure [email protected] not going 2 b enuff.

 

What U think, Should I call the Springfield PowerStation up and ask for a direct line? :-)

 

Cheers,

Richie

For that type of setup I would go with a 431watt power supply. Gives you a little breathing room. :D

The system would start slowing down. As for how many lights, I would say this 350 watts to power your normal stuff. So about 80watts for modding. Which would be 16 neon 5watt lights. :D
