Hello,

I am seriously looking at this cool MEGA PC as HT add-on. I am thinking of adding a ATI 9800 PRO card. Can I do it? :O

If maximum PC's specks are correct then no you cant, It comes with a 200W PSU and cant handle a card like that.
But you never know it just might but unlikely

I say NO WAY! not to mention it probably would not fit.

I wouldn't waste a good card like that in a unit like that anyway. There was even a post about someone not being able to fit a 4200 in it, although I have seen some of the other cubes hold a 4200 which would be optimal for a unit like that realistically.

Another Maximum PC reader!

I don't know if it will fit, but let me say this about those Flex-ATX 200W PSU's. Don't count the smaller PSU's out. And don't think that a higher number is better. Because when it comes down to it, it's about quality not quantity.

I have a Shuttle SB51G with the ACHME 200W PSU. Just 200 little watts, but yet it runs 100% stable with the following:

P4 3.06G @ 145FSB (3.35G)and polished/lapped heatpipe
Kingston HyperX DDR434 (2x256) @ 2-2-3-5-8 1T
Radeon 9800 Pro 128MB @ 441/371 and Iceberq4 Cooler
Pioneer DVR-105 (1.33b unlocked)
WD1200JB 120GB 8MB Buffer Drive
Atek Pro III flash reader
2 60mm fans (from Coolermaster Dual P4 Xeon coolers)
EL Glowing faceplate
ANTEC Tri-Led fan for heatpipe
Round cold cathode from a cold cathode 80mm fan.
