> Thanks Sune,

No problem. I only wish more people would join the discussion, like old times. They're probably shaking their heads at you for throwing money at a 7 years old PC. That said, your "2008 dream PC" is shaping up nicely lol

> The GTS 250 looks good, I've found a 1Gb unit online for not much money.

Great. It should do fine for PCSX2 and MAME with HLSL/OpenGL shaders and its a great match for the Wolfdale Core 2 Duo.

> There are loads of PSUs out there!! Any advice on what to go for, are there
> compatibility issues with different mobos??

Not normally, no. You're buying an ATX Power Supply for an ATX motherboard. The ATX standard was last updated in 2008 but the plugs have been the same for more than a decade.

Don't forget to plug in the 4-pin power connector close to the CPU. The GTS 250 also has its own dedicated power connector.

I'd get something like this. In my opinion, it ticks all the right boxes and Seasonic have been around for 40 years for a reason. Google some reviews of it for a second opinion.
