    motherboard seems to have smaller than normal atx adapter and 6 pin pci power.  I'd even be willing to put into an different case

    I have the same problem it is a proprietary connector. thinking out loud, mounting in new box and using another "normal " supply to power the peripherals ?

    I am told that the DC7100 "CMT" and MT use a standard micro atx motherboard. The others in the dc7100 and 6100 series use a custom board. So I am going to try a 24 pin 500 watt atx/micro atx power supply. I already know that I will have to fabricate a mount, but it should be worth it.

I Want to upgrade my processor from 2.1 gig to a 3.3 gig, but the wattage jumps from 45w to 65w. do i need to upgrade my power supply and what and where do i find one? i have a 250w supply now.


No necessarily, the present power supply will be just fine, but if you will upgrade something else in the future you will definitely need a bigger one. Luckily it's a simple ATX PSU that can be bought at every computer shop 0 get a 400 watts one.
But you will need a much better processor cooler, the present one will be too weak to cool the new processor.

Hi im looking to upgrade my dell dimension 4700 graphics card. I currently am running a radeon x300. the minimum improvement im looking for is 512mb. also wondering if ill need to increase my psu as I...


Since you want to upgrade your video card to a much powerful one, you can check this out ATI Radeon HD 4670 HD4670 512MB DVI PCIe Video Card.

Doing the upgrade a power supply upgrade is also advisable since new video card like now requires a high power supply, upgrade the power supply to at least 500W and for a additional fan is already recommended to avoid any overheating problem.

I have a HP dc7600 SFF. Tried to Install 2 graphics cards no vid


The dc7600 SFF only comes equipped with a 240 watt power supply. I think this may be causing your problems.

I am currently looking for a graphics card for the same comp with the HIS ATI HD 4350 in mind, but the website states that a 300 watt power supply is recommended.

How do I check to see what my power supply is, so I can upgrade proper graphics card


Hi,

You will have to remove the side panel of the tower to expose the motherboard. The PSU (power supply unit) is above the motherboard.
If you read the information on the PSU, you will find out how many watts it is, for example 350W, 400W, 450W and so on.

If your wanting to put in a powerful graphics card to run games like GTA4 or Need for Speed Shift then you will need a power supply no less than 550-600W

Make sure you get a Dell power supply as standard PSU's don't fit in a Dell case.


Regards.

Hp compaq d530 400 watt power supply


You will not find a power supply for this case. Why would you want to upgrade such an old computer? Get yourself a new one with amply power for your needs. If you are one that upgrades regularly, get a standard case with standard components that can be upgraded without the hassle of replacing proprietary form-factor compnents.

What power supply is in the et1161-07? I am looking to upgrade the graphics card to a nvidia 9500, 9600, or 9800. They all require different wattages.


The power unit in question is a 250W supply unit. Nvidia series 9800 cards require 580W, the 9600 series require 300 - 400W, and 9500 series require 350W. All of these will require a new power unit. Antec is a more than adequate. Any computer shop should have a 600W unit for $100.00.

Want to Go HD but only have PCI Ex1 and PCI on Dell OptiplexGX520


Yeah, I would certainly look into replacing the motherboard with something that has a PCI-E 16x slot so you can use a higher-end video card. I will forewarn you though, that the power supply will probably have to be replaced with it, as most, if not all, video cards that have HDMI out as an option, will need a little more juice to run (so look into getting something at least 520W rated, especially considering what else you plan on running in the computer, blu-ray included) I can't remember how the HDMI rules work on an ATI card, but I do know that if you get an nVidia card, for HDMI to carry both video and sound signals, it has to have at least the GT designator (ex GT, GTS or GTX). Hope this information helps you out, and happy hunting!!

How much watts of power do i have?


the 9600GSO uses arounf 250 watts under load. While I cannot fing exact spec for the HP PSU I would be surprised if it were more that 350W. Is there any indication on the case or can you open the case up and look at the PSU?

9600 GSO Power

You need somthing in the order of 450W or greater. Get an Enermax, Corsair or other good quality PSU.

Replacing a Radeon 9800 Pro AGP graphic card


Axis 3000 is listed as 360w and this should just do as the card requires 350w. As you are going to Ebuyer anyway why not get a new PSU, they have a 450 watt PSU with a large fan for £16. Make sure you are getting the AGP version and not the PCI-E version of the card. I find eBuyer are usually open to replacing items and you could ask their tech support first.
