Adding video card, psu, fan
So yeah I have a compaq sr1130nx Athlon XP 3000, 512 pc3200
So I want to get a video card, 6600gt, but I only have the factory 250w power supply, so I want to upgrade to 350w.
But I have heard that compaq doesn't like to use regular atx power supplies, what is the deal? I've heard tey can fry my mobo.
Also I'd like to cut a hole in the case of my compaq for spite, and to add a fan, I'm guessing I can just plug it into a loose connector but it will run at full speed so I need a fan controller right? Or can I use a switch or just a variabe resistor or simple circuit. Thats just a guess. so yeah.
I would get a new mobo because I would like to get pci e, but it is socket A so I would never be able to upgrade, or buy a new cpu, which I can't afford all that right now.
Thanks in advance
