Dell claims the XPS 400 has a 375w PSU, and is the only PSU out there for this system

Recommendations?

  1. Why don't you open the case and check the specifications? Report back with the +12v rail rating. You should be safe with at least 28A. Hopefully you didn't pay too much for that Dell :|
  2. Where do you live? Thats overpriced for a 3870. Check out newegg!

    Something like this will do the trick. Fits into any one of your front 5.25 drive bays.

    Your psu has a 30 amp combined +12v output and probably doesn't need to be upgraded, but, if you wish you can use almost any standard ATX 2.0 or higher psu.
  5. Call (on the phone) PC Power & Cooling and talk with a Tech and get a real PSU for your system.

    I know people with both 3870's and 8800GTS 512's....they all say the 8800GTS 512 is better and uses less power/runs cooler.

    With mine my eyes can't tell it from a 8800GTX and all 8800GTS 512 will OC to basicly the same rate of each other if your into that,so brand does not matter nor does a factory OC that you pay more for.
