Americans Take Your Country Back

Americans need to wake up and realize that it will only get better if we make it better. We need to stop letting companies ruin this country. As a veteran of the Iraq War, this deeply disturbs me. I don't want to see my country fall apart. I defended it because I want to raise a family here and I love my country. Yet with the way the economy has been since my return in August of 2007. It has been a constant struggle. The U.S. seems like it has hit rock bottom, much like most of the friends I had before I left. Yet at least they can say their rock bottom was caused by the prescription pill epidemic. The only excuse America has is. Obama. Everyone blames him, yet in reality. It is our own faults.

We bailed out the banks while we were at war. Big companies pay off politicians to pass laws that let them benefit from something negative upon the country, company and persons who work for them. Bankers were bailed out, then gave themselves bonuses. Politicians receive money and make tons of money from the taxpayers, yet they complain and can't seem to come to an agreement on taxes. Which effects the general population more then it would them. Yet they will only pass something that will let them line their pockets with gold. It is a reverse Robin Hood. Take from the poor and give to the rich.

If in fact politicians were truly there to help the American people. They wouldn't have bailed out the banks for not doing their jobs and scamming the markets. It seems like the more crooked and corrupt you are in America, the more you can benefit from it. I try to live a pretty honest life. Yet I am poor. Should I do the wrong thing? It seems like it. Hey if bankers and politicians can do it, why can't I? Oh wait. I forgot. I'm not rich already or I don't hold a position of power to turn the tides in my favor.

Americans have forgot the essence of this country. For the PEOPLE, by the PEOPLE. Yet where are you people? Well to be honest, a lot of people showed up for the OWLs movement. We tried! Yet until Americans are directly effected, we will not stand up. Sadly I will say this...I don't want to but I am. We are lazy and do not care about the welfare of our countrymen.

We need to stop worrying about making a profit from something and start worrying about how to save humanity. Someone would rather make a dollar, then to help someone who is starving. To me this is sad. No I can't fix the problem myself, but at least I have the balls to stand up for what I believe is wrong and right.

It is wrong that the government allowed Police to break the laws, yet when citizens break the laws we get thrown in jails. We have the right to do these things, it says it in the Constitution and in the Amendments. Yet when we practice these, they come up with a loophole of how to stop us from doing it.

It is now or never America. Wake up, take our country back. These greedy politicians are not going to go down easy. I don't mean take up arms and rebel against your country. I mean take it down legally using laws already in place. Use the system the way it is designed and reclaim control!

5 Reasons to Play The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

I have been playing The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for about a week now. Yes I know I am a bit late, but I have it right? Anyways what got me interested in this game aside from the pure hype of it, was the fact that I had previously played The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. As a fan of this game, I was very tempted to play the newer version of the series. Yet I was skeptical at first because of all the bugs and glitches from the previous version. As I sat down and started to play it, I noticed that getting the game was a great decision.

1. The game mechanic are much better. Upon playing for some time I noticed that you can't just run around and jump and sprint and gain a skill increase. Unlike its older brother, this was an issue for me. As it made the feel of the game seem a bit unreal. Yes I am sure in real life if you run around jumping, you will get better at it. Yet for game physics it would allow you to feel God-like. Jumping 15 feet in the air is not realistic, and for a game like Skyrim, you want it to be as realistic as possible. Even though it is a fantasy genre game.

2. The graphics are improved. I don't really have to show you to be able to tell, but I will. The fact of the matter is. Oblivion came out in 2003 and then Skyrim came out in 2011. Here is a visual of the character evolution from the two.

Picture found on
3. Freedom to do anything you want. Well almost anything. The game is so open and so is the world. You be any type of character you. It has its limits just like any game does. Yet it doesn't force you to follow the story line if you wander off. In fact you can play the game without doing much of the storyline. It is up to you to complete it. You can always just follow your own path that attunes to your play style. The game doesn't block you off with an invisible wall that forces you to follow the story. This I like. A lot of games will make you follow the story. Yet with Skyrim, there are so many side quests and other things to do in the game. You could play for hours on end and not complete any of it.

4. Dual Wielding. Ah yes, who doesn't like to dual wield? Well magic caster normally don't like it, or do they? In Skyrim even as a magic caster you can dual wield spells. How freaking cool is that! This was something I always wanted in Oblivion. A lot of the times I just dodged the attacks anyways. With dual wielding you can take advantage of the extra weapons damage modifiers. When dual wielding spells it also allows you to use an overcharge ability that also has a modifier to it!

5. Skyrim has the ability to keep you engaged in play for what some say "hundreds of hours". The storyline, side quests, training of skills, exploration, and so on. Skyrim leaves little behind for almost any player. From what I read online, the fastest time someone has completed the game was in between 2-3 hours. For a game of this magnitude, if you completed it that fast, you skipped most of the fun parts. Rushed through quests, didn't read anything, and basically had the concept of how to beat it to begin with. You should play a game of this caliber to its fullest potential.

A New Month Turns a New Rank

I found a new tool that allowed me to check all of my Alexa and Google Page Ranks. Upon checking all of my domains, I was really surprised and grateful that I have seen positive results since my last checks. Some of my sites didn't fair as well as I had hoped for. Yet I wont let that get me down. Instead I will be happy that my main domain had risen so rapidly. Hopefully this is a sign, and increased visitors will come this month. (Fingers crossed) - My main domain and my favorite so far.
  • Before: 28,384,237
  • Now: 13,344,920
  • Difference: 15,039,017
Not bad If I don't say so myself.  I went up 15 million ranks. That is with one month down. Lets see how far we can take it. - My mobile news blog.

  • Before: 15,774,793
  • Now: 15,990,412
  • Difference: -245,619
It went down!! Oh No! That is not what I wanted. I guess I will have to work on meta tags. I looked and I did not have any for this domain. This makes me ponder though. How much traffic would I obtain if I have had some niched keywords added to the meta tags. - Gaming Top Site. 

  •  Before: Nothing
  • Now:  16,781,829
  • Difference: Now Ranked

Since there was no data to go on from the previous month and with such a dramatic jump in rankings. This makes me wonder as to get a domain changed. Obtain a gTLD. Instead of having sites in the name. I will be looking for something like Game Top Site .com. Something of those sorts. I am sure that I will have to throw some time into finding the perfect .com domain for this niche. I have seen the ranks of other top sites and they are very good. If I can grow this one, Move the domain, and work on the layout and design. Then get some great traffic. I am sure that this website will take off.

Multple Alexa and Google Page Rank Checker

I found this nifty place where you can check all of your domains Alexa and Google Page Rank at once. Well at least up to 12 different domains at once. This really would have came in handy during my last post. Although it is not hard to manually check all of my domains one at a time, this tool really helped to increase the speed of the process. I do not own 12 domains (yet). I only own 4 of them. Anyways I will show you the results I had gotten for my websites.

You can find this tool over at

Progress At Last

Tim Freeman's Blog - A General Blog - No Data
Gangs of War - Mafia Game - 28,384,237
Where Can I Find - Mobile News Blog - 15,774,793
Abandoned PC Games - Abandoned PC Games - No Data
Top Mafia Sites - MMORPG Topsite - No Data

Not the best. I am content though for the moment. Gangs of War has been having the most visitors so far. It is also one of the newer ones of my domains. I am happy that it made it into Alexa though. I had been looking around on various domain worth websites. Trying to gain an insight as to what GoW has as far as SEO. Then it appeared after only around 11 days. Not bad. I have another site that is just a little bit older and for some reason it is in Alexa already.

Gow doesn't seem to have many backlinks according to the domain worth websites. I can't figure out why. I can sometimes find them with them, other times they all show up as none. I know I have some out there. I have went and did some backlink building. Nothing major, but at least around 10 sites or so .

I know I use GoW in my signatures around forums. That helps to gain backlinks. The more I chat in the forum, the stronger that backlink gets. I hope. Seems like right now I am chasing a dream with GoW. I am trying really hard to make it work. So far I keep seeing results so there is no need for me to give up yet.

Today I worked on APCG. I added roughly around 9 new games. I still need to meet my quota I set for myself of having 50 games by the end of the month. To be honest I can do it in the two days I have left. I have a cookout tomorrow to go to, but when I get back from it I could pull off at least 15 new games in an hour and a half or less. Do the same thing again tomorrow and I will surpass my monthly goal. I have not been putting as much effort into APCG as much as I should. This is why.

I added statcounter to APCG so that I can get some demographics of my site. Upon doing that I did get some good info. I noticed that I was already on the front page of Google with this site, for various keywords as well. This came as a shock to me. As there are more reputable sites out there with a .com domain. APCG is #3... I repeat...#3 for the keyword of "abandoned games".

So 2 thumbs up to APCG! Now I just have to finish what I started with this site. If it makes any revenue, I will turn it into a .com. With a better name of course. As well as add some new features. Lets not get ahead of ourselves though. I did the same search using Google Chrome and couldn't even find APCG. Funny huh?

Here is what statcounter is telling me though. I seem to be getting a lot of good spots on these keywords.
So like I said. I am just going to keep posting abandoned games. It is going to work or it is not. I hope it does though.

A Muse Myself - A Ramble

No, I am not talking about amusing myself. I am talking about a muse. The thought of being able to have a lot of ideas, yet not being able to use any for yourself. Everyone has this feature in some sort. Normally people are only good at a few main talents. Yet I always found out I could do just about anything I wanted. I always had ideas to save the world, or an idea for an easy way to fix a situation. It didn't really benefit me when coming up with these nifty ideas. It simple made life better for everyone who it was involved with.

As I said of finding myself talented. I can do anything it seems, Except excel in one said category. I have always been pretty gifted with technology. Yet I can't seem to bust onto the scene doing what I want. I can make a small presence. Yet not make a home run.

Yet not to frown. Keep trying. Keep pushing and try harder to make it all better. That is what it is all about. I keep pushing myself, I have learned many new things over the weeks. Improving in many areas. Is that what life is about when you feel like no matter the task you can complete it?

Once you complete it, it brings joy to you. You have achieved a goal. Now will the same action bring the same joy each time. Or does it lose the value behind working hard to obtain the reward it gives. Life brings upon us funny tricks like this. Some goals can be repeated and it is the same, other fail. Which brings on us a new thirst for a new goal.

A rotating cycle of feeding for knowledge. No wonder the smartest people of the world was sought out to be so crazy. They led a life with a constant thirst. Much like a vampire

Ways to Make Money from Being Online

The best method I can think of is making some sort of digit product to sell. This can be many things such as

1. Multiplayer Online Game. Players can buy in game items, upgrades, or special perks. There are many genres at which to choose from. It seems the biggest thing in the market today is Mafia, Army, Ninjas, and Zombies. If you enjoy playing the game you will get enjoyment out of it yourself. Along with being able to be online for you users of the game for support. The best way to get new members for free is to make listing on topsites and MMORPG sites. The more the better. Have your users vote on it to make it more popular and bring in even more people. Also have a referral system set in place so that your users can invite their friends, earning something for the referral is a plus to get them to do it. Ad some adsense and let it go. The best adsense method I can think of it PPM. You will not get as many CPC adsense revenue with a game like this.

2.  eBooks. Anyone can write them, even you. If you have an eBook that you can sell, you would be surprised at the money people will spend or to be honest about it. Think micro. How many people will spend $5.00 for a digital eBook that is there as soon as they pay. Compared to a $50.00 Book bought in a store, better yet another eBook in the same topic, just selling it for cheap. If you can make 25 micro sales at $5.00, compared to the one sale of $50.00. You would actually be making more money with the micro sales.

3. Web design company . Even if you do not know how to make websites. No problem. There is a simple solution to this. All that is needed for this is some start up capital and a little time and effort on your part. I have read a recent eBook that told of this little venture.
  1. Get simple website that looks professional enough to pass for a good web designing company. Create contact information. All the good stuff that a web designing company would need to have on a website. 
  2. Once you receive your first offer. Charge around $500.00. 
  3. Find a freelance programmer for hire. Offer them $125.00-$200.00 to make the website for you. Remember that there is always someone out there willing to work for as little on the dollar as they can. Some people do not even work for a dollar and hour if they chose not to. Although you want to be careful as to whom you choose. Make sure they person has a reputable status within the community at which you  had found them.
  4. Receive the website from the freelancer
  5. When happy - Make payment
  6. Deliver the website to the customer.
  7. Collect payment.
Cost was in the range of $125-$200 = -X     -X + $500 = $300-$375. That would mean you would make around 300 to 375 Dollars for basically nothing. If you can get a client base and build up to where you do a just a handful of these jobs a month, you can be making some serious money.

PTC services. Paid To Click is an online business model that draws online traffic from people aiming to earn money from home. Find a site that will pay you to view advertisements, or click on things, even complete registrations and surveys. A great site that I use and have been using for some time now is.

Now see what I just did there. I advertised my referral link. If you sign up using my referral I will earn: 20% of what my referrals earn. Each new member that I refer will also earn me 4 points when they complete their first offer over 50¢! Please keep in mind when referring members that they only have offers for US, UK, and CA members. Any members that are referred outside of these countries have no earning abilities, therefore they will earn me no commission. Not a bad deal if I don't say so myself. You can do the same thing I just did. Refer someone to use a site or product. You earn affiliate money from them. As well as being able to make some extra change along the way by completing offers yourself. There are many PTC sites out there, so you should be able to find one that suits you.

Packing A Lot of Information

I was just sitting here thinking about the amount of web design stuff that I have self taught myself.

  • Html
  • PHP
  • Javascript
  • CSS
  • Adobe Fireworks 8
  • Adobe Dreamweaver 8
  • Paint Shop Pro 8
  • SEO
  • Google Page Ranks
  • Backlinks
  • Metadata
  • and much more....
It is kinda crazy once I think about it. I have dedicated so much of my time to learning this stuff. I try to make it all work. Yet it seems like the www already has everything you can think of. If not someone else will make it!

Mafia This Mafia That

As of lately I have been staying pretty busy. I have managed to make another site. Top Mafia Sites - Mafia MMORGP Topsite. I wanted to get into this industry for a few reasons. First. I own a mafia game. So why not make a site that can help promote it as well as driving traffic to my competitors and maybe earning some cash from them as well. It seemed like a good idea to me. Not many top-sites specialize in mafia games.

Update May 7

April and May have been a good month for ole Tim Freeman. I ended up getting a job so it has taken out time on my writing. Not a bad thing, I see it as a good thing. I am making solid money now instead of relying on small pocket change income from my endeavors around the internet. Already got a raise and working on another one because I am in the process of being promoted.

Not bad huh?

LG 900G/GW300 Tips and Tricks

I recently purchased LG's 900g. I got an amazing deal on it at Wal-mart for $29.99. Upon searching around the internet for information on this phone, I found that it was hard to obtain this information. Most sites didn't offer answers to my questions. There was a forum where they listed all the technical information, with users asking questions. Some of them were answered but not some of the important ones.

Motivation to Improve

When launching 2 websites at the same time. It really helps to motivate you to keep on doing what you are doing. Just seeing 3 members sign up for your website and talking some with them can inspire you to great heights. It makes you feel like you have something worth their time. Which might not mean a lot to some people, but to a web designer it means a lot.

Targeting your audience is a hard thing to do sometimes. Especially if you don't know where to market that niche at. As with my other site. I think I will just keep posting and letting search engines do its own thing. Maybe I will use my Google webmaster tools and help it out some. Seeing if I cant get better indexing in the next week or so.

Indexing into Google is easier with Gangs of War. As a game I already know where to market that site.The key is topsites! I have been doing it on and off for some time now. I am hoping this one kicks off to a better start then the previous two. Though they did not make it. I still have hope that I can make one of them work well for me.

Abandoned PC Games will be a free service site. No charging, though I think after some time I might have to add in advertisements. Depending on how many daily hits it starts to receive over the next month. Hopefully to help with hosting costs. As long as it takes off that is. If it doesn't do well in the first 3 months, I may just have to take it down.

X10 From Free Hosting to Premium Hosting

I have been using X10 free hosting services for roughly around 3 years. I use it for all kinds of reasons, but mostly for testing purposes. Since it is not a full featured web host, because it is a free service. Certain things may not be possible to do on the free services. For layouts or just seeing if you code works correctly. Seeing how an image looks on the web or any testing purposes that I need, have been fulfilled because of this great free hosting!

14 Games Added to

Abandoned PC Games or APCG is what I have been calling it to myself. Has posted 14 games on their forums. They are also looking for some volunteers to help them write reviews for the games. It is a new forum, so any help would be appreciated. If you can volunteer you time to help post games it would be very welcomed.

As I said before I think a forum is a good way to do this type of site. It is working well so far, so no need to change it right now. If things start better, as in getting more and more hits. I might change the site over to a CMS which is more along the lines of what the site is. This would allow better presentation of the games and reviews.

Better Blog Over the Years

As I look back on my blog I noticed a few things that have changed since I started back in 2009. I noticed how things slowly got better, but never really took off. Which is fine for me. This isn't one of those micro niche blogs where you find great info or anything. This is just an all around blog of my life. Along with some tricks and tips along the way. Who knows, I might start adding tips. On to the things that have changed.

New Project - Abandoned PC Games

I will be starting a forum. This forum will be for abandoned DOS and PC games. Basically Abandonware. Which is not technically legal, but not illegal ether. I will be basing my game choices from a trusted site that I get the from now. Which seems to be getting mega amounts of traffic. I want in on that action as well.

Launch of Gangs of War

Lexington Kentucky - Spring Is Finally Here

Spring finally seems like it is here...Finally. With !Yahoo reporting the current weather as 65F. The wind doesn't seem as strong as it has been the past few days. The sun is out and shining, that is a plus sign. Not a ton of clouds at the moment. Spring sure seems like it is off to a late start. Does this mean winter will come later this year or will it come early? With all the things going on to the Earth. Natural and human disasters, along with global warming and overpopulation, no wonder "Mother Earth" doesn't know how to act.

Everyday Public Relations vs Social Networking

Most people are not concerned with PR, their status in life does not require them to have a huge interest in public relations. Then along came social networking, where you put you image and life on the internet. Your friends can check on your status, see photos of your kids, or even remember old college pictures. This can discrediting to some depending on the nature.

Old Home Getting A New Paint Job

I think the last time the upstairs of my home was painted was when we first moved into this house, 15 years ago! Finally my landlord is providing us with the paint to do it, although we still have to paint it ourselves. Cheapo! The downstairs has been painted since then, although I do not know the last time it was.

New Addition - Rats

After not having a pet since 2003, my girlfriend and I had decided to get a pet rat.  So last Friday she goes out to PetSmart and gets one. Upon further research I find out that rats are best when in pairs or more. They are social critters and need at least one companion in life. Kind of like us humans, without someone else around we go crazy pretty much. At first I was not too thrilled of the idea of having them. Then I started to learn that rats are pretty easy to teach, from using a liter box or to do tricks.

Company To Provide You With Fake Girlfriend On Facebook

Company To Provide You With Fake Girlfriend On Facebook

Apparently not having a girlfriend these days is something most men have a problem with. I remember friends used to make fake profiles with hot girl pictures and say it was their girlfriend. Sadly we knew they didn't really have one and just made fun of them. Now they have a whole company dedicated to making it look like she is real! Are you that lame? Honestly do you have no integrity left in your soul. A fake girlfriend? Seriously? This is just a step below of you ordering a mail order bride from Russia. What makes it so important in the online world that you do have a girlfriend? It is not like you are going to get the same satisfaction from a fake one on Facebook as you would in real life. Also what happens when your friends on Facebook start to add her and try to talk to her? Does she reply back? Does she even know what to tell them? What if they already know he has a fake girlfriend. I am about 50% sure this will be a company.

Funny Baby Falling Asleep While Jumping

I Want A Nap -

A friend of mine has started up a blog about motherhood and the trial and tribulations that go alone with it. A quirky blog with fun pictures, nice recipes, and joys that only parenthood can bring. It is new and I am in the process of helping her to fix the layout of everything, but feel free to give it a look! 

Clout Level 5

I haven't been writing much for !Yahoo/AC this month. Not that I have been slacking off but I have been hooked on NBA 2K11 for a little while now. I checked my page views over the past month to see then plummet to around 4-5 page views a day. Not top of the line by any means. Slowly adding to my total of view. My clout level is now at 97% of the way to being clout level 5. It adds no bonus or more per 1000 views. Just the fact of getting it alone is great for me. A sense of achievement for myself. Don't take it the wrong way, I would love to be at level 10 right now, and pulling in a couple thousand views a day. Yet at my writing level and time spent writing, I am not up to par with those types of articles. I guess they are out of my league for the time being.

Self Investing

I have made a little bit of pocket change. Lets say around $15.00. I made this money free of charge, I spent nothing but my time to make it online. I got the money from various places like !Yahoo Contributor Network/Associated Content and Paid the Fastest. I have access to a Mafia Game Script that will allow me to run a mafia type game on the internet. Using only a browser to play. The sad part is to run it I need to pay for hosting.

So I am looking for a supporter. You pay for the hosting costs with is around 75 a year. As the supporter you get a banner on the front page of your business or logo or whatever you like.

Slacking Off

Sadly I have been slacking off on my work. I have picked up playing World of Warcraft again. Maybe I can manage to create some material from playing the game? Or maybe not, who knows. I haven't produced anything in a few days. A small slump. Page views are still doing pretty decent; dropped a little bit over the weekend.

Valentines day just passed. My girlfriend and I didn't get to do much. We have each other and that is what really matters. I started using the T.V. from her place as a monitor for my desktop that I got running again last week. This makes for a big viewing area.

Just a small update. Stay tuned

February Update : Day 10

A week has went by so I thought it was time to give an update. This is a big update for me. A couple of things happened over the past week.

I fixed my gaming computer. Turns out all it needed was a new power supply. I found one pretty cheap on the Internet. $17.99. It might be cheap but it is 550 watts and it runs my PC just fine. No more loaner PC for me. The one I had was just so old but I am glad I had it for the moment, as it allowed me to purchase the power supply.

I currently have 361 page views for the 9 days it has counted. That is almost 40 page views a day on average. I need around 54 page views a day on average to attain my goal. However something happened today. I had submitted 3 articles for up-front payments. I received an email today letting me know one of them was declined for up-front. My morale was shot but I went on to publish it as a Display Only. Later on I received another email saying that an offer has been made. They are willing to pay me $3.53 for one of the articles, then another one about an hour later for $3.00. This made me very happy and raised my morale through the roof.

I had a very good weekend. I'm back to being able to play games and have a fast computer to do my work on. Faster computer makes researching things easier. Especially when you need to read from one page and type on another. Windows 7 helps me do that. That is for sure. I had Windows XP on the loaner PC and it had Microsoft Word on it. I wrote all of my stuff using that so now I am used to it. I will be getting it for Windows 7 because I don't like the Word that it comes with much. Not enough features and no spell check.

February Update: Day 3

With three days under my belt into February, I have notched in 80 page views. Running behind schedule a bit, but I put in 3 articles on the 4th. I did one on the Top 5 Signs to Get a New Computer, in the morning time. For lunch I did a movie review on the action movie The Mechanic. Right before I ate my dinner I finished up a 2 page article about the 10 Reasons to Dislike a Cell Phone.

I still have 3 pending articles that I submitted for up-front pay. I have not received any notifications about it yet ether. Nine days have passed since submitting them. !YCN/AC says that the process normally takes about 1-2 weeks. So I sit and wait.

Not to get discouraged though. I have 24 more days this month. However if I maintain a strong work ethic and a positive attitude, everything should be ok. As the day ticks over into the 5th day of February, I await until the morning time again, to see how many page views I obtained on the 4th.

Getting Life Back Into An Old PC

So I have been wanting to game for some time now, and I have been able to play some games. The loner computer I have right now is an old dinosaur of a PC, as you can tell from the specs below.
Most applications and games now require at least 1GB of RAM to run. Along with a crappy integrated video controller from Intel. This things runs about as slow as can be. My gaming rig was a pretty decent build.

Equipped with:
  • Phenom X4 9100e Processor
  • 750 GB Hard Drive SATA
  • 4 GB of DDR2 SDRAM 240-pin PC2 6400/800MHz
  • 2 GB Overclocked EVGA GeForce GTS 250 PCI-E Graphics Card.
  • MSI K9N2 SLI Platinum nForce 750a Socket AM2+ Mother Board
The bad part is, it will not boot up. I replaced the mother board, but it didn't do much good, still no boot. Changed out power supply and still no boot. That really only leaves the RAM, mother board, processor, and power switch. Since you should be able to boot/post with no RAM being seated, but get an error post. That rules out the RAM. That leaves the processor/w heat sink and fan, and the power switch. I tried to short the power switch on the mother board but it still did not create a boot. That leaves me to believe that it is the processor.

So I will start off by trying to replace the processor since I have no way to test it on another working pc that will match the socket.
Update: Feb, 11 2011
Found out it was only a power supply issue all along. Replaced with a 550 watt PSU and now I am back on my gaming pc. This makes me a happy customer.
