Hello I am looking to buy a new PSU over my Coolmax i bought 2 weeks ago and i need some help
first I need something with 22-24 amps to power my BFGTech 6800GS OC AGP
second I need something that will fit inside my case and i need to know how i would figure out if it would fit inside before i buy it
-my case is an HP no name case I have an HP Pavilion a450n =/ if that helps at all
third I need it to be lower than maybe $75 USD if thats possible
the return on my rosewill will net me about $30
can you help me out? (i made a mistake buying rosewill)
mpilchfamily you are so helpful you have answered 75% of my posts
ok this is what i heard from the guy at Fry's and im paraphrasing:
companies that manufacture prebuilt systems like HP purposely manufacture their cases to be smaller so that you have to buy certain components that will only fit in your case. end qutoe
Such as with my PSU (i had to take a thermaltake purepower 430W w/ active PFC(!) back before because it would not physically fit in my case without takeing out my two optical drives. then I bought the coolmax and now im finding out my videocard might need some more juice.
so... i would like to avoid a hassle due to a power supply not fitting by knowing whether it will fit in my case beforehand
Ill measure my power supply bay tomorrow and post back the specs if that might help
FSP looks good to me but again i have to know if it will fit
Ewwwww... I don't even know if you can stick parts from an HP into another case... I probably wouldn't even want to risk it... They should use standard ATX configuration, but with these Tier 1 System integrators... you never know...
