    Is Opus powerfull enough for a Celeron 2GHz

    I currently have a 200W power supply on my HP 502n which is a Celeron processor @ 2GHz. I plan on adding things like sound card, gps, usb HD and DVD-ROM.

    But the Opus seems to have a 150W supply. Does anyone have any experience with this small supply? Any side-effects?

    And is Opus the only PS with a shutdown controller?

    The OPUS isn't the only one with a shutdown controller, but I think its the most powerful one I've come across with one and definitly the most well built. 150 watts will handle your celeron without a problem. I have a anthlon 2000+ with a 3D card and 7200 rpm harddrive and a bunch of usb devices and I'm only pulling 100 watts at peak processor usage off my 150 watt OPUS.

    I have a P4 2.4Ghz CPU in my Carputer and it seems to be doing fine. My computer does restart at random points in time. But not that much really. Maybe a couple times a month. I don't really know what's causing it though.

    I just installed my Opus (bout dang time I get it) and my computer restarts A LOT. Can't even load windows now. I have an AMD XP 2600 with a 7200 RPM HD and all the other crap in my signature. Still working on the problem though....
