  1. Hey!
    I was planing to to upgrade my psu for a high end graphic card Ati Raedon X1950 pro which certainly requires more then 305 watts supplied by the E510 psu

    I did a research, browsed the forums, many posts stated
    Antec SmartPower 2.0 should work fine and fit, but after checking the reviews for that psu it turned out, most of the people did'nt had a good experience with it, either the psu stopped working or took out the whole motherboard

    Can any one suggest me a nice, reliable psu
    I was looking at Ultra X finity but not sure,
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thankyou.

    FSP, Cooler master, Sparkle, PC Power and cooling.... most others. Avoid cheap. Just be sure the length, width, and height in millimeters are the same as the old one.

    Many Dell computers (if not all) come with proprietary psu to mobo connectors, ie, they arem't 'standard'.

    If you buy a non-Dell psu and hook it up, you may fry your cpu and mobo and heavens knows what else.

    Check with Dell BEFORE you do.

    Actually most Dells do not have proprietary psu units.
