    Is My PSU Powerful Enough?

    In my current PC I have a Seasonic s12 330w silent PSU powering it. Is it good enough for my pc specs (in signature) do you think?

    I only ask because I have been getting occasional PC freezing when I leave account running overnight (switching to welcome screen in XP).

    Even 200W will be plenty for that setup, try running SP2004 / Memtest and see if there are any errors. Windows event log should show something as well.

    Also try go to My Computer -> Properties -> Advance -> Startup and Recovery -> Untick Automatically restart. It should tell you what have crashed next time.

    Re: Is My PSU Powerful Enough?

    I run the spec in my sig on a 400W so i wouldn't worry. If you're having problems that might be due to lacking power than do something about it, but otherwise I wouldn't think it's a problem.
    Current: Shuttle SX58J3, i7 950, Corsair 16GB, 2x 1.5TB, XFX 6850 1GB, 3x Samsung 23" 1920x1080, 5760x1080 = AWESOME!
