    Check the power supply. I'm not sure what power supply is in that Sony Vaio but you need a minimum of 300 watts, preferably more.

    F*ck whatever you buy don't spend it @ CompUSA. They suck. They charge a 15 or 20% return fee on ANY returns. They're ripoffs when it comes to the computer repair department. They don't pay on a lot of their rebates. You've been warned.
