if you removed the sticker, i think you might be screwed. I dont think that system would run on a 200 watt psu.

Check how much your system needs here:

My system take 213 but, IT IS ALL FREAKED UP!!! My third video card doesn't work, and my sound card lag like hell. Thanks for the site! I really really really really need to buy a new PSU. And, I'm pretty sure I only have 200.

well general malfunctions can sometimes be blamed on dodgy psu's, thats why i invested quite a bit on my psu.
