I bought a dell Inspiron 537, 3.0ghz Core 2 duo & 2 gigs of ram... I want to put a Evga geforce 8800 gts KO edition in it & a better PSU cus the one in it is only 250watts...
I'll be running the E8400, 320 gig hard drive, 2 gigs of ram & that 8800 GTS
My question is, what size PSU would I need, i calculated it and it came to be 399 watts.. so should I get a 450-500 to be safe? And how hard will it be replacing the PSU in a DELL computer? I've built a couple myself but never actually replaced a PSU, will I have to take the MOBO out? I think it should be a simple swap but im not sure
Also, this 8800 got good reviews and said it'd play most anything out on HIGH settings, true?
Im wanting to do this and give it to my brother for his birthday, Monday, since he's got a 5 year old dell and cant play the games he wants anymore.
