I have a 300W power supply on a system running: 1 Seagate 7200RPM 60 GB Hard Drive
1 Floppy Drive
1 AMD 2400+ processor w/fan
1 ECS K7S5A Pro MoBo
1 system fan in front of case.
1 Blow fan (fits in i/o card slot)
1 MSI GeForce 4 MX 440 AGP 4x 64MB SDRAM Video card w/TV-out
1 USR 56K modem.
I know you probably can't tell from this without the power requirements from each of these products, but I was hoping I could get some idea if 300W would be enough.
I would either like to add another case fan in the rear that would pull the air flow more over the processor. My processor is running at about 46-47 degrees celsius when idle. It seems a little high to me when it is just sitting there doing nothing. Is 300W powerful enough to handle all this and possibly another fan? Does the 46-47 degree idle temp seem high or is that good? Thanks for any input.
