Hello guys,

So my pc has:
  1. Intel Celeron e3300 clocked at 2.5Ghz(original part)
  2. 4gb ram ddr3(aftermarket, it comed with 2gb)
  3. 300w psu(original part)
  4. Intel g41 expres chipset as integrated video card(original part) i think its intel gma 4500 or smth
  5. motherboard foxxcon 28ach or smth like that(original part)
  6. 500gb sata 3gb/s drive 7200rpm(aftermarket, was a 250gb or smth.)
  7. and a cd drive (original part) i can remove it if it is taking power.
My Power suply is:

  • Passive Power Factor Correction (PFC) - with line switch set to 230 V - No PFC in 115 V line switch position
  • 90 to 140 V ac, or 180 to 264 V ac operating voltage range
  • 100 to 127 V ac, or 200 to 240 V ac rated voltage range
  • 50-60 Hz rated line frequency
  • 47-63 Hz operating line frequency range
  • 300 W maximum rated power
  • 80 mm power supply fan - variable speed for optimum acoustics
