Replacing the Power Supply DEPENDING on the power needed? you might have to settle for a slower, weaker performing video card. Make sure you check the video card power supply specs needed.
Chances are you will max WATT at about 300WATTs less then what you'd need to power a gaming video card. OR you could do as I'd do.
Remove everything and place it all in a standard tower case - install a 650WATT power supply in to the new mid/full size case and BAM solution found.. Have fun and a great day to ya.
This dimension desktop was designed to minimize space usage and comes with a built in ati radeon x600SE graphics adapter which is pretty lackluster and why you want to upgrade I'm sure. The problem is the vacant PCI slots are only half hieght so you will need a card that will fit in a half hieght slot. There are a few good ones that will and are compatable. One suggestion is the ATI Radeon X1550 which is a pretty good card and takes up 2 half hieght slots and costs around $100 to purchase. Hope this helps you.
The one extra cable with the small socket may be for the newer computer that require a power imput to the CPU. Also some of the more poswerful Viseo cards also require their own power cord supply. Many ATX power supplys have extra leads not being used .
It sounds that the Power supply Unit is faulty and needs
replacement.The ATX powersupply is easy to replace. you can do it
yourself. Just remember how you take it out is how you're gonna install
a new one back, remember where the connectors go on the mother board.
Remove PC from power mains before you work on the PC. Before you touch
the inside of the PC just touch the frame of the PC to ground your self
to avoid static. Good luck.
