Magnus,

If the box is using a high powered graphics card, you need to have a large power supply to safely run it. Running a computer with hard disks and the normal stuff does not need a big power supply but if you use a recent high powered video card, some of the draw over 300 watts. Think of a gamer's machine as needing an 850 to 1000 watt power supply.
