Unless you have problems, your power-supply is totally adequate.
Probably, even a 300W power-supply would be sufficient
(one DVD-ROM, one disk-drive, one video-card).

Which amplifier is the best to power my 450watts 8ohms speakers for maximum output

This is a vague question... to answer you properly I would need the true SPECS of the speakers, the TYPE of speakers (full range, woofer, diameter, cone structure, etc...) cubic foot of the casing ?, diameter of the PORT ? if it has a BASE REFLEX (some kind of separation in the casing) or not ? or just go with any GOOD KNOWN BRAND 450 Watts RMS amplifier...

My Power Supply Burnt Out Can I Get It Repaired?

A power supply can't be repaired.The replacement cost is probably about what a repair would run anyway,or less.
Pick up a new one,and you also pick up a new warranty.
Good or bad,please rate my post?

This board has 2 slots for the ATI Crossfire video cards. Since the computer is turning off right away, it would appear that your PSU (power supply unit) does not have enough watts to power the motherboard and Crossfire video cards.

Check with ATI for the power requirements for your video cards and upgrade your PSU.

I typically see SLI / Crossfire systems with at least a 800 watt power supply. If you are below this, you will need to upgrade your power supply.

If you have a larger power supply, you will need to verify it is working correctly.

I bought an Ultra LSP 650w power supply (upgrade) for my HP a1150y and it won't even boot up (fans come on & thats it). If I put the old 300w (oem) PSU in the PC, it works but it won't meet the power...

if thats wat the specs say then thats most probably the max youve just bought one thats to powerfull, and y did you need so much power the most powerfull graphics card in the world needs a 750watt power surpply, your computer is probably not designed to have major upgrades, and by looking at the specs i can see that your computer well putting it simply is **** for upgrading the specs are **** (no offense intended) i suggest upgrading to a whole new computer if you want that sought of power and graphics

according to this ( the dual core is not an option. I'm not sure if that means that Dell doesn't offer an upgrade, or if it's not possible. First, open your tower and look over the Motherboard for the manufacturer and model. Once you have those, google them and look for the specs of what cpu's are supported by that motherboard. If you can and do decide to upgrade, check with the CPU manufacturer to see how strong of a power supply you need for the more powerful CPU. You're might be ok, but you might need to upgrade the PSU (Power supply) with the processor. From your description, I can't tell what motherboard is in your Dell. That will be the limiting factor. Get the motherboard specs and you'll know what you can do.
