While I am taking your advice rather seriously, I think I'm going to  
stick with underpowered. After looking at the PSU, it's only rated to  
about 250 Watts. Something tells me that an AMD Athlon 850 MHz with  
256 MB of RAM, 10/100 Mib NIC, 56k Modem (I plan to remove this), PCI  
VGA card, Sound card, and a Hauppauge PVR-150 might draw a little  
more power than 250 watts.

No offense.

I don't think the RAM is the problem here, but I'll keep that in mind.

Thank you both for the advice.
