Default Can my system run like this?


I have a nice system that I take to LANS alot, but its in a hudge server case, and weighs A LOT!

So, I was thinking about buying this case:

It has a 420watt psu, but I dont think I can upgrade it because any standard PSU would be to large for the case.

So I just wanted to get that case and a micro-atx mobo for it.

Then just take my system out and put it in there.

Im just worried that 420watts may not be enough for an x1900xt, amd 3700+, hard drive, two disk drives, and a floppy drive.

Can I get away with running this system on a 420watt?

I wouldn't, but you'll find out soon enough when(if) your computer starts rebooting for no reason.
