I have an older core 2 duo off the shelf Acer computer for which I would like to replace the power supply. The computer is Acer model AM5630-U5202A, and the power supply is a LiteON model PS-6301-08A. I have a newer computer that I use as my main computer, but I would like to keep the Acer going as a backup and as a TV tuner since is has a tuner card.
The more powerful cards coming out, do they require more or less power? I have a 750W Corsair modular from a couple years ago and since then I have added a couple of hard drives and fans, nothing major. But I am running an AMD 6970
I am going to upgrade to a 670 or a 290x next week, but it just occured to me that maybe this power supply needs to upgrade?
