    HI, I am currently running a gigabyte mobo, 2600 xp, 9800 pro, 80 gb maxter, cd/rw, 4 case fans. I want to put in a dvd player or even burner for half-life 2, do you think my power supply is up to it. Thanks,John.

    I would imagine a 3330w PSU would be enough to power your entire kitchen

    I had pretty much the same spec with a Macron 300 and that was fine, better than the QTec 450 which kept crashing and locking up my system at least
    Antecs are ace tho, got a nice TP550 sat behind me atm that mite be going home at some point

    That's good to hear, you've got similar specs to mine as well, might consider buying one then.

    [EDIT]

    How many molex connectors does it have?

    Hi again, something a little more off topic. Basically I want to see what make my current PSU is and that means having to remove it from my case. Can I do this as soon as I switch my PC off and will I need to remove all the molex connectors from the peripherals?

    You should be able to see the make on a sticker on the side. Some are annoyingly placed on the wrong side, or mounted upsidown, so chances are you will have to unscrew it, but you should be able to leave everything connected.
