Decibel meter

Greetings: I used to hangout here in 2003/2004 and I am back.

I am hoping to find a budget/used decibel meter. I don't like what I see on Ebay and would rather support a member here.

Thank you.

I'd like to blame XP since I am strictly a Win 98SE sort of guy, but that is lame. I hope I can figure it our cos eventually may be able to be a similar pc - a 3.0 for a super cheap price and migrate my 9800 fanless card to it. Thanks Chang.

PSU power to run 2.4 with mobo?

Hey greetings,
I bought a pc with an intel 2.4 and cd rw and stupid 250 watt psu sparkle brand.

I just tried to place a 9800 ati card and modem in it an the mobo died.

If I replace the mobo and reuse the 2.4 cpu will a 300 watt psu handle it ok?

TIA

Good read here, what I seen on ebay is the 6800 are very much higher in cost than a 9800, and oh my sweet goodness a nice gigabyte all fanless 6800 is on bids up to 335.00 now, I wish I had more money!!!
