You need to look at your PSU itself then, it should be stamped somewhere on it either imprinted or stickered. It's usually a code of some sort but along the code you should see for example XXDX300, where the 300 would mean your PSU's wattage. You should also try and find your 12V+, 5V+ and its 3.3V+ ratings as its more important in some ways!

I joined this form because I want to play Pinball on my Windows 7 and would like to know how I can access it. Can anyone help me or am in the wrong place?

Right place, but reviving a one and half year old thread is not the way to go about it....it would have been better to start a new thread....that said the pinball game is not in Windows 7...there is a way to slipstream it in...seemed to me to be a lot of trouble....PinBall

Multiple-monitor problem playing steam games
If I have both my monitors enabled and try to start a game such as CS:S or TF2, it puts it into an infinite loading screen and I can never get to the main menu. The only way to fix this is to play in windowed mode or disable the second monitor. Has any body heard of a fix for this?
