I'm thinking about buying a 550 Watt power supply for my
Duron Tower. I have "a lot" of big fans installed and many Hard Drives on a 'Raid', so this 300 watt Power Supply is "just squeaking by.....
Here are the specs for the power connectors it comes with,
I just wanted to check with you guys, just to make sure...


One (1) 21-inch ATX power connector
One (1) 21-inch 12V ATX power connector
One (1) 21-inch Auxiliary ATX power connectork

21-inch ATX is what I should have right now? Am i right?
Thanks for helping me out,
Hope you all had a good Thanksgiving.

400,430 is enough I would think, but if you want overkill, then go for it. :)

Thanks YoS, I also didn't include that I modded my case a bit. I have 2 huge fans that I took out of a old server, and made two "blow holes" on one side of my case. They suck up the DC,
a lot, plus my 6 hard drives, plus 2 cd roms, I wanted the "overkill" just in case...
