Power supplies and demanding processors
Me and my dad allways get into an argument about computers and one of the most common one is power.
I keep telling him that he needs a 400w or more power for a P4 processor but he still uses power supplies that are in the mid 300watt range.
I think it's really important for him to have at least 400 watt but he seams to never be convinced that P4's actually need lots of stability from power supplies.
My dad also got three p4 motherboards that he claims are "damaged" by the power supply, looks like I'll just do some testing on that when I get a chance... But in the mean time I need to find a way to convince my dad to upgrade to higher wattege power supply.
