Provide Adequate Power to Your Computer

Corsair Professional Series HX 1050There is one very important component in your computer and most users don't pay it much attention unless it completely fails. What is it? The power supply! This one "black box" provides power to your motherboard and all the components in your computer.

Is your computer unstable? Are you blaming the software? While that could be the problem, it could also be that your computer isn't getting enough juice. The list of possible causes is very long!

For those who buy off-the-shelf systems, you may need to replace a power supply one day as they do fail. If you build your own system (it really isn't that hard), you can choose a really good power supply. What is most important is that you get one that provides more power than you think you need.

I'm going to list four possibilities and they are listed in increasing amounts of power and price. The first one is definitely the least expensive and it probably is enough for an average powered system. What amount of power you need is dependent on the components in your computer. When in doubt, spent a few extra dollars to make sure you have more than you need!

I know this isn't power supply-related, but you have long been an advocate of using a pen and tablet (Wacom, Bamboo). I recently acquired one, but I really can't figure out how to make use of it--not the technical, but the nuances of drawing in Corel with a tablet. Unless I missed it, I don't see anything in the X6 Unleashed book. Could you do a couple of tips or tutorials?

I'm not really sure what there is to write in a tutorial. It is a pointing device that is much more natural than a mouse. Typically it takes users a few days to adjust to absolute positioning (with a tablet) after years of relative positioning with a mouse.

How do you draw better? Simple, you are holding a pen instead of a bar of soap. It's just easier and more natural.
