Nope. I'd return it for a refund.

The PSU isn't the only issue here. Do you really think you can run heavy-duty games on a dual-core CPU with 3 GB RAM?

There's no shame in not knowing how to build a computer. But the solution is simple: Just buy a computer from HP or Dell. Simpler. Cheaper. More reliable. No build-induced headaches.

In another thread it was reported that the monitor identification feed to the PC was disrupted by a recent Windows update. Perhaps that update caused this problem, too?

Four years ago I paid $80 for a 250 GB drive.
So today, $157 for a 3 TB drive is cheap.
That's 6x more for the dollar.

It's not so bad. I saw a drive 30 years ago ... 5 MB for $5000. Just the raw drive. So that's $1000 per MB. (And that was with NO controller and NO host adapter.)

Silly. :)

If your DNS server is not performing well, it should be fixed.
