Question about Gateway 510 XL Peak Performance (510XLPP) PC Desktop
I have a Gateway 510xl and would like to upgrade the onboard power supply. I just replaced the video card with an Nvidea 7600 Gt which requires 350 watts as opposed to the 250 watts my computer comes with. The onboard power supply is an FSP250-60atv. Gateway part #6500836. What do you recommend? I was thinking of an Athena 550 watt (ps-550-server-uni for $95.00 from Holland Power Supply) but I don't know if Athena is reliable, and although the model I just listed is supposed to be compatible, I am not sure. Any help would be appreciated.
Changing out power supplies is not that difficult task. Upgrading to a 550 Watt power supply would be a good idea because it will give you more power than you need at the moment. You can google the power supply with the word problems with it and see what comes up. The main thing to be sure of when selecting a new power supply is to make sure that you get one with the appropriate connectors for your hard drive, motherboard and processor. For example if you have a SATA Hard drive then you will need a PSU that has SATA power connectors. Most newer power supplies (PSU) have these. The box should list what connectors it has.
