    Default Power consumption help

    I ordered my new pc and im excited, but the one thing tat worries me is the psu, it is only 300 watts and im looking to buy a internal capture card.

    I was wondering if it would be able to handle it along with my NVIDIA Geforce GT 610 1GB, 1tb hardrive and cpu.


    Also the capture card im looking at is PCI-Express, but my pc has normal pci, and pci express 2.0 so i wanted to know if it would make a differance if i installed in the pci express 2.0.

    help is greatly apreciated

    You're probably fine, but I wouldn't push it. There are some PSU calculators out there you can use with a quick google search, to calculate how much wattage you're using, or you could get a meter to see how much you're pulling from the wall.

    Keep in mind though, you never want to run a PSU at it's max rated capacity; don't pull 299W from the wall and think you're fine.

    im sure that PCI 2 is backwards compatable

    Yeah, but if you do want to add a higher-end graphics card, or a few more hard drives I'd recommend getting at least a 550 watt.
