Now that the new power supply arrived, my big project of the day, apart from working, was getting my new GeForce GTX 275 into my gaming computer. I bought a Corsair TX 750W and apparently overestimated my needs a little bit since it has like 20 connectors for SATA, floppy, PCI-E and power, while I needed a mere 6. The problem is that my gaming machine is in a standard case, so it's quite small and the PSU's wires are huge, on top of the fact that the GTX 275 is twice as big as my previous 9600 GT card. It was no easy task cramming all of it in there, and I'm sure airflow isn't optimal, so the next purchase will have to be a bigger case. Maybe Santa will bring me something I can use ....
