Underperforming power supply?

718 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  rmay635703
A vendor shipped my company a Cad rendering computer consisting of the following:
2.4ghz proc
2ghz ram
ati radeon 9800 pro video
300 watt power supply

The computer has been locking up about once a day. The machine is used for looking a medical images utilizing java and cad. my first idea was that the power supply is grossly underpowered for this computer. Does anyone agree with this? Would a computer lockup be consistent with a weak power supply?

Yeah it does seem that its being taxed too much - not necessarily the problem but not a good thing at all.

Powersupply calculator:

ATI recommends a 350 Watt powersupply when using the Radeon 9800, but that depends on what all is inside the computer.
