Power Supplies

What i am wondering is if it's possible to use 2 power supplies on one machine ?

I just got a new computer and i'm a bit concerned about the size of the Power supply. Can i take the power supply out of my old machine and link it up somehow to my new computers power supply so i can make use of both ??

Yes you can but I would recommend using one power supply that has enough volts and amps to take care of your needs. CAUTION. I don't recommend going inside a power supply to do any connecting two power supplies together. Power supplies can retain power even when they are unplugged. Power supplies have capacitors in them. capacitors can store power for years even when not in use.
