Hi there, I've just purchased a barebones Shuttle PC (+components) and will be building it soon. However, I read a review that suggested the power supply provided (250w) was quite low. I was under the assumption that small form factor PCs can run with less power consumption than a standard ATX system but after reading that a typical ATX system power supply is about 400w I'm a little worried that my psu won't be capable enough.
I won't be running anything particularly extreme on the Shuttle but I often use quite cpu-intensive programs like Cubase and Max/MSP. Can anyone tell me whether this (250w) is a typical psu for a small form factor? And, if not, what kind of wattage should I be aiming for instead?
I can post system specs if it's helpful to anyone :)
