power supply

A vital part of any computer, the power supply comes with the case. As its name suggests, it distributes power to the computer's components. As such, your power supply should be of very good quality. Unfortunately, that is often not so. Be aware: An unstable power supply can create spikes and surges that can easily damage sensitive chips and components. Upgrading a power supply is always a good idea.
