Thanks for that.

I 'think' that I've got a pretty good PSU in there. The old one died and 
I got a good one last year. I'm not sure about any separate graphics 
card power though so I'll bare that in mind and not be surprised if I 
have to buy new when it comes.

Is there any way to find out about this before I order?
