  1. Not sure about recent Dells, but previous Dells would not allow other ATX power supplies to be installed. Even if it fits, they reverse voltages somewhere just to make their PSU's proprietary.

    I had a recent dell that had a standard ATX power supply. I was able to confirm this by looking at some technical specification documents on dells web site.

    I wouldn't get a rosewill cpu. From what I hear they are one of the worst quality PSU manufacturers.

    Yes it will fit and work fine.
  4. What they both said. Check the pinouts first to make sure you don't have to buy a Dell-specific PSU. If you don't have to, buy something better than Rosewill. FSP is more highly regarded, but they've got some models in the $45-$55 range that should be suitable.
  5. Dell has used standard ATX pinout for the past several years.
    Here's a recent review of the 500 watt Rosewill;

  6. I bought my Dell 4700 about 4-5 years ago and i lost the manual, so i don't know if i can use other power supply. I'm not sure if the manual on Dell website is for my Old 4700 Dell or Recent Dell. I will do some more researches. Thank you for all the replies.
  7. Maybe this will make it easier for you

    http://www.pcpower.com/products/viewproduct.php?show=S47ATX

    Both of these psu's are the same, the one that is not advertised as being for Dell has a 20+4 pin motherboard connector and a switch. Oh, and a pricetag that is $40 less, which make's it more appealing.

    Also,you can find the manual for your machine online at Dell support, but it will not help, it just states the wattage of the stock psu.

    Power supply size looks to be ATX, but are the pins the same?

    Compare the last link to this:

    Looks like it will work to me. Do your self a favor and dont get a Rosewill or an Apevia power supply. Check out this link for some reccomendations: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/243627-28-anyone-reference-list . Also, the last power supply i got had 80%+ efficiency rating so it was much quieter and saved me alot of money on my monthly electric bill.
