Power Supply


I recently had a power supply failure.

I am trying to get new one, but am unsure of what kind to get. I would try to get the details off the power supply itself, but I do not have it in my posession anymore(Don't ask why, Long Story).

Anyway is there anyone who can suggest what king to get wattage-wise and what not.

OK, I have:

an ATX case, Pentium 2, floppy drive, hard drive, CD-ROM, NIC, modem, soundcard, and video card.

If you need more info, ask me. (Oh I also can't find the MOBO manual, Life Sucks)

Thanks in advance

probably a regular ATX 230 watt or more power supply should be adequate enough for a system of that type.

Too much power

Would too much power overload it, like 300 watt?

I got this idea from the eletronics teacher at my tech school.

as far as i know, it shouldn't affect it, cause most components on inside distribute what power they need to operate normally, and don't or won't take more power than needed.
