Dying PSU..? Insufficient PSU..?
friends (old) rig
mobo: ASUS p4p800 e-deluxe
cpu: pentium 4 prescott 3.0 ghz
video: RADEON X700
RAM: 1.5gb of generic PC3200 DDR1 RAM (2x 512mb, 2x 256mb)
PSU: generic 350watt psu... sticker says 16A on 12v rail
its having trouble playing pretty much.. anything we have!
could the PSU be the problem? or do you think one of the RAM sticks is bad?
I had similar setup before,(same cpu, same mobo, but 1x 512MB RAM PC3200, and a RADEON 9600SE) and somehow i managed to perform at about the same level as him
another friend is running a 2.4 ghz pentium 4 with a RADEON 9250 with 2x 512 MB generic PC3200 RAM... and outperforms the X700 build easily
