Default Question about my PSU.

ATM i'm gaming on my other build while i wait for my mobo to get sent out and a new one to get sent back.

im using a dinky little case... and i was using that powersupply because the plan was to use an 8500 gt in it... but i wanted to see a little bit more fps while im waiting and tried to throw in one of my 8800 gt's. Well when i did that i got a very loud annoying beap from my mobo and no display on my monitor. My only guess is that this Powersupply doesnt haev enough juice to power the 8800 gt, i tried once without the extra power into the back of the card and tried with and both times i didnt get a display... - RAIDMAX O² ATX-302KP Pink 0.7mm SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 420Watt PRESCOTT/ SATA Ready Power Supply - Retail

yes its pink... but im makeing due with it for now and i find it odd that i can play TF2 on full graphics but not css without getting massive jumpy-ness... so i turned AA off...

So basically, i just want confirmation that i can't use an 8800 gt with that PS and will have to suck it up and wait untill i get my mobo? (2 lazy to take my 800w ps out and stick it in the pink case... plus idk if it will fit)


"Raidmax has made the perfect case for girl's night in, the O² pink."

rofl it's for my mom...she is a pink fan, i even gave this comp a nice little pink panther boot skin...
