    SO balh, im on a crappy laptop with nothing to do. My power supply overheated apparently, i had no clue it was ever like this until my pc randomly shut off and i smelt burnt rubber after. One of my wires was melting D:

    Only a bit though, it didnt explode or anything. SO now i have to get money to buy a new and better power supply

    i wont be on much for a week i think, unless if i can get one today

    Sucks man

    I'm still dealing with issues from my power supply exploding a few weeks ago

    First my graphics card died on me. Replaced it, but then half the motherboard died right after that. It's like a series of cascading hardware failures

    Lucky I didn't lose any data

    It didn't, i checked everything last night

    I think the problem was that it was only 580W and i have a 260GTX

    Yes. I'm afraid of getting a new one of my own sometime soon. I can't upgrade my computer any more now that I'm not working (I don't need any more stress in college right now). I've got a 9800 gtx with a 650w that's... like 2 years old. D: GL getting your computer back up and running.

    Should be fine. I have 600w powering a C2Q and a 9800GTX
    My friend runs a 9800GTX and an i7 off a 450w power supply :|

    My computer has "officially" broken three times. Twice it was my PSU sploding.

    I got a 1200wat. 100% overkill but it was on sale for $200.
