    hey guys
    i would just like to let you guys know that with my computer and it's 250watt PSU, my new PowerColor Radeon9800pro works like a dream.

    before i bought this video card i was so scared that it wouldnt work because i had such a pissy PSU. However i took the risk and bought the card anyway. I would have bought a new pSU but i needed more dollars.

    when i installed it, my computer is stable...no random reboots or anything. Ive been playing warcraft3 and ut2003 for about an hour straight now.

    Im also running a BenQ 52x24x52 burner, samsung dvd-rom, 2 92mm Zalman fans at 1600rpm and 1 80mm fan (dont know what rpm).

    i get about 5555 points in 3dmark2003.
