    HP Slimline's bigger brother: Dell Studio Slim 540s

    I wonder if Noble blew up his computer. My computer runs very quiet with the Sapphire 4550, except for the seemingly random times the case and cpu fans do their berserk thing. It only lasts a second, but it's really annoying.

    HP Slimline's bigger brother: Dell Studio Slim 540s

    The 4550 works great. Of course, I'm not playing any games on it that are very challenging (yet). Morrowind looks lovely. The 4550 seems to be a nice, small, efficient card to go with a nice, small, efficient computer. :D How do you check the power usage? I suppose I would need to buy...

    Chklin, I'm curious about why you're so confident that that XFX card will work in the 540S. The box wants you to have a 350W power supply. I installed the card on my 540S and things seemed to be going well, until I decided to access the DVD burner. That's when the computer shut itself off...
