          Hi Edogg,

          Here is a list of PSUs that are recommended for use with DG45ID however before you one of these, make sure the casing you are using supports it.

           

          Since power supply needs vary depending on system configuration, the usages described below are not intended to support all possible systems. It is important to choose the proper power supply form factor and power level for your application. Evaluations for any individual system configuration are considered the responsibility of the integrator and/or system OEM.


          By clicking on a link below you can view tested power supply lists:

          *The low total power output of the power supply may not provide the power needed and is not recommended for these configurations.

          CAUTION: Failure to use a power supply with the proper amperage ratings for Intel® processors, or not connecting all power supply leads to the mainboard may result in damage to the mainboard and/or power supply.

           

          Power supply model numbers may vary slightly. Check with your preferred power supply vendor or distributor to ensure Intel® processor support.

           

          Thank you and have a nice day!

              Eric,

               

              I would recommend downloading the latest drivers for each piece of your hardware, from the appropriate manufacturer's website.

               

              What kind of video card do you have? If it's Intel, ATI, or nVidia for example, then I would go to their website and obtain the latest drivers. They make it very easy to find the correct drivers for your platform.
