howdy all, the old monk here, with a poser. My 'puter really wants a 350 watt p.s., but I've only got a 200. Is it possible to slave a second p.s. to get the extra, needed watts???
It's better just to replace the whole thing. You can buy a 400W power supply for as little as $30, and the replacement is easier than setting up a slave* PS, which can cause problems in some situations.
Check pricewatch. Just a couple months ago, I purchased a dual-fan 500W PSU for $16, shipped.
Even though you can slave two power supplies together, that's pretty, UM, GHETTO. For one thing, how easy would it be to find a case that accepts two PSUs? You'd probably end up drilling a old in the side and sitting the second PSU on top.
