Question about PC Desktops
Depending on whether Gateway used a standard sized fan 40 / 80 or 120 mm fan you might be able to find one at most electronics stores for Somewhere between $2 - $8 USD.
However if it is a proprietary sized fan or if you don't feel comfortable digging around inside of the Power supply. (A power supply contain high voltage capacitors that CAN maintain a charge even once the power is removed) Then it might be more beneficial to you to replace the power supply itself. Most OEM (Manufacturer) power supplies are in the 250-400W range about minimum to run the equipment your PC comes with from the factory..... Now add in any Aftermarket products you install (ie..... High end Video cards, sound cards or additional drive(s) and you can see how easy it would be to exceed your Power Supplies limit) Proprietary fans could demand a premium price if they are a special order and if your not comfortable around High voltage devices, then a new PSU is alot cheaper than a hospital bill for an electrical shock.
Hope this helps you
