Hi, a very useful/simple initial post. Thanks.

May i suggest mentioning the Bronze, Silver, Gold ratings; what it means and why (if) it matters.

Also perhaps mention that PSUs tend to 'age' and something that was once 650w may no longer be so.

Hello there, Recusant!

Well, this post haven't been updated in a while! Probably this vacations (from Aug. 18th) i'll make some changes to it, now there's a different rating (80 Plus Platinum, about 90% efficiency) thanks for the input!

Cheers!

Hi guys,

I have just upgraded my graphics card to a GT640 2G DDR3 which cost S$139. Cannot believe I've been playing WOW on onboard graphics with shared memory of 128MB for the last couple of years!

Hello there, mBenQ... Well... about AGP cards, don't know that much and much less about availability... I guess any AGP board will do "OK" as long as it doesn't need extra power from the PSU
