    Do I need more power????

    The power supply in my computer is going bad, the fan is not working right. Right now the power supply is 250w. I am thinking of upgrade it to either 300w or 350w, what is the advantage of having a more powerful power supply. I had a lot of thing in my computer I use all the power outlet from the power supply.

    Here is the list of thing I had

    P-III 600
    HP CD-RW
    DVD-rom
    NEC 38x cd-rom
    2 30G maxtor HD
    ATI all in radeon
    256mb ram
    NIC
    SB gold 64
    zip drive
    floppy drive
    3 fans

    so computer is pretty much full, my question is do I need a more powerful power supply?

    I would say: yes. With so many drives, a 300W PSU is a good choice I think. You won't need more propably.
