Hey all,

This is a bit of a theoretical question.

If my PSU puts out x amount and I wanted to fit a GFX card which would take more power than the system uses in total would it help if I disabled an unused piece of hardware?

ie. If I disabled a floppy drive (physically from the PSU) would the power saved be available to a different piece of hardware?

Thanks for any help.

of course, i'm 99% sure it would

that is exactly the reason i already had my floppy disabled, and only one cd/dvd drive instead of two
+edit+ and then you don't have to hear that annoying sound it makes sometimes!

OK - thanks for the prompt answer.

I was getting myself tied in knots trying to get answers about PSU's!

I'm confused about power rails etc..
