Will I need a new Power Supply Unit?


Hi Everybody,

I'm looking to replace my old graphics card in my 4yr old Dell Dimension 4600 P4 3.02ghz computer, with an ATI Radeon X1950 Pro graphics card (AGP).

The PSU currently in the comp is only 250 Watt, I suspect I may need to replace this unit with a more powerful one to run the card, am I correct? and if so is it possible to replace the current PSU withouth thrashing the motherboard, and can anybody recommend a PSU that is compatible with this system.

System Chipset is Intel 865PE

Any help greatly appreciated

The one Razor linked to should work. I have a Corsair HX520 in mine and whilst it didn't fit perfectly, it all worked in the end, despite being a tight squeeze.

If you don't want to spend as much, then the Coolermaster iGreen series should fit without problems.
