  1. I'm thinking of upgrading my power supply. I'm pretty sure my PC does not have a propietary power supply (bought early 2004), but the back side covers the on-off button found in many power supplies, such as this one:

    Picture of backside. Notice it covers most of the power supply.

    I know I have few options. 1) Upgrade to the PC Power and Cooling one, shown here:

    2) Open a hole in the back of my case to be able to fit other power supplies.
    What do you guys recommend?
