    Particularly the 3.3 V rail line if I'm not mistaken.

    But list them all anyways.

    It should be able to run it, because some manufacturers sell Shuttle PC's with Radeon 9800 Pro Cards inside them and their PSU's are ~200 W.

    sure here is what is says on the back of the sticker, and by the way, after close examination of the PSU, I've finally discovered that is was a 200 Watt PSU!!! Instead of 250!!! AHhhhhh.

    Hirpo 200 Watts

    Model: HP-A2027F3

    Ac Input (47-63 hz) 100-127v -/ 16A
    200-240v -/ 13A

    DC Output: +5 v-.-.- / 23A
    +3.3v -.-.- / 16A
    +5vsB -.-.- / 2A

    +5v & + 3.3v shall not exceed 148w
    +5v & + 12v shall not exceed 163w

    I have a 350, with 5 PCI slots filled (tv tuner, 2 usb cards, network card, and sound card), 2 hard drives, 2 optical drives and I run a 9800PRO just great.
    Never once had a problem. It's an Antec, almost 3 years old.

    Just put together a nice system for a friend.
    Axio case w/480 watt for $85.00, lots of power. Do that

    yeah, thats probably what i'm going to be doing, i've found a really cool looking case with 500w PSU, at my local computer dealer for only $59.99 CAD, and I'm probably going to purchase that case. Although I know that 500w psu wouldn't supply me with "full" 500 watts of juice, but i'm sure it would do just fine. And one more last question, does anyone here know what are the common symptoms of running a videocard with just barely enough juice to power everything up, IE. (Running 9700 Pro, with 1 HD, 2 Optical Drives, 1 Floppy, and 1 case fan on 200 watts psu) Thanx for all the suggestions.

    PSU could quit.
    computer could shut off.
    Pixelation.
    I don't know what else
