My System Specs

I checked that link out you gave me for power supplies and they do indeed make Dell specific units... Price is double though!

I am going to power down to take a good look inside the case and see if it is indeed proprietary in nature...


Well the good is that it does seem to be a standard 24pin connector to the board. Bad news is there may not be room for a dual slot cooler with out modding the stock HS/F on the CPU. I had been thinking about modding the HS/F in hopes of pushing my CPU up to 3.0ghz, but that is another thread.

Any additional thoughts on if CPU/Ram will bottle kneck a 512mb GTS?
Get a part# off of it and do a bit more digging. My understanding of their proprietary PSU/Motherboard combinations is that they look and feel like a standard PSU, but have different pin-outs on the connectors.

Better yet, try to find somebody with the same model computer (google is your friend) who has already replaced the PSU in order to confirm that a stock PSU won't fry your motherboard.
