View Full Version : Power supply question.....

April 1st, 2009, 08:17 PM
Ok, I here is my setup for my box...

BIOSTAR TF560 A2+ AM2+/AM2 NVIDIA nForce 560 MCP ATX AMD mobo
EVGA 896-P3-1260-AR GeForce GTX 260 896MB 448-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card

idk the ram my friend gave it to me but i have 4gb
and his 600watt power supply and Creative autigy SE (sp) and i have a amd 2.6 dual core

But here is my question. I have a speaker system with a sub and 2 desktop speakers and whenever i play my music loud etc the light always gets really dim so im thinking i need A) a bigger power supply or B) rig up another power supply somehow (idk how but my friend has done it and it worked really good) Surely 600 watts would be good for what i have... Any suggestions greatly appreciated!

Are the speakers powered from the computer or are they plugged in? And is this LED on the speakers?

sounds to me like your speakers are powered by AC, and not by the computer. should not have anything to do with your power supply.
