Yes, tho I think I mentioned that in an earlier post. He's got only a 450 watt, the one that came with his case, and those aren't always known to be good to anything near the claimed rating, and often don't have UL or other certification matching that claim up to anything even close to real numbers. If it's UL listed for 450 watts, he's likely OK, tho maybe barely. However, if it's not, the thing could be peaking at 250 watts or less, 450 watt claim or no 450 watt claim, and that just won't cut it. -- Duncan - List replies preferred. No HTML msgs.
