    Powering a P4

    My system I am trying to power.

    P4 515
    4 sticks of DDR ram
    1 HDD
    2 fans
    3 USB items


    I have been looking hard to find a DC-DC PSU that will power my current system. Using a power usage calculator it shows my min at about 167w and max at about 209w.

    The biggest PSU I can find is the Opus 360w. I'm still not sure it will work. Is it possible to wire up two PSU's?


    I would like to stick with this system mainly for cost reasons, but would it be easier/ cheaper to replace it?

    if you are interested ni the Opus i would give them a call or email. they are VERY helpful.
    i spoke with them for about 45mins one day , detailing everything i need to provide power to, and "he" was able to calculate everything needed and tell me which psu to get.
    or advise if i need two PSU's

    i am currently using the OPUS 250, the 360 was not available at the time of my purchase

    i have 2 HDDs, 10 USB devices, 1 stick of ram, a mini atx motherboard with one on-board fan.
    he advised i maybe pushing the limited of the 250, so he advised i either get the POL device to power an powered USB hub to offset the load of the 250w opus. or get a 2nd psu

    I sent them an email and they said that the Opus 360w should handle it fine.
