We need to know what wattage the PSU has. Look on the side of it, there's generally a label on the PSU that says how many watts it is.

It's almost laughable thinking, 90nm technology when we're going on 32nm this winter.

I have the 7300 & a stock PSU, can't remember the wattage on this one ? But it has been running the 7300 & 3 hard drives for over 18 months almost 24/7 with No problems. You could always get an inexpensive higher wattage PSU on sale
