Im pretty nub-ish when it comes to the PSU. Is it on the table printed on the sticker of the PSU?

Yep. A quick Google search will tell you precisely what you're looking for.

In response to your earlier question I forgot to answer, the PSU is pretty much the most cumbersome piece of equipment to change. All connectors to components have to be disconnected and its likely that in order to remove the PSU from its cradle/slot you'll have to remove the motherboard and perhaps some fans too.

Well, having checked, it appears the 400W is wank.

Do you think this would be any good?

Due to the brand, no. If the brand is bad enough, the PSU will blow up before it actually reaches its wattage capacity. Any power supply that cheap will likely cause problems.

You want a PSU made by Akasa, Antec, Corsair, Enermax, OCZ, Seasonic, Tagan or Zalmac. Yes they're more expensive but then they aren't going to die at the drop of a hat either.

Hmm, my friend recommended it for me, he has a 400W version of that same one I gave, do you think the 9800GT would break a 500W?

He too said that i'd be better off getting a proper brand but, he also says that for what im using it for, that would be fine.

In case your wondering, im just using it for general use as well as playing a few games, and the PSU is only powering one drive along with all standard components.

I'm just unsure as to the quality of that 400W PSU. By all means purchase it if you want to as the price isn't steep but I'd personally not recommend it as I've no guarantee its of decent quality.

A 9800GT should never ever cause issues for a 500W PSU.

Right, so I ran a little diagnostic using the 'run' tool, and found out that my graphics card is the 'ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2400'.

Is this any good? Would I need to upgrade to play Dragon Age and similar games?

How does it compare with other graphics cards now? I assume its a little bit out of date

From a desktop point of view:

The latest card from ATI is a Radeon HD 5870, the world's first DirectX 11 card.

I'm using a 512MB Sapphire ATI Radeon HD 4870 and I play games without issue. One could go more extreme than that but it'll be perfectly fine for the likes of Dragon Age, Devil May Cry 4 (which was surprisingly intensive on the graphics card), Race Driver GRID, Modern Warfare 2 and pretty much anything else you care to think of. Bought it for something like £150 when it was new.

Where laptop graphics cards are concerned, look here: http://www.notebookcheck.net/Mobile-...ist.844.0.html

You could always try playing Dragon Age with your existing card and see if it struggles. That way you'll only buy a new graphics card for your laptop if you need to.

Good luck changing it over if you need to :|

CRISSGRAN has stepped out of the darkness into slightly less darkness

The card I use for gaming is a GeForce 9600 GSO 1.5GB and it runs everything perfectly.
