Hi, I want to change my PSU and my graphics card, these are my system specifications:

ACER Aspire M3641 R01-B4

Processor: 2.33 gigahertz Intel Core2 Quad Q8200

Bus Clock: 333 megahertz
BIOS: American Megatrends Inc. R01-B4 09/11/2008

Drive:WDC WD32 00AAJS-22B4A SCSI Disk Device (320.07 GB)

It also has 4gb of RAM, a Nvidia geforce 9300 ge graphics card and a normal DVD/CD burning device.

My current PSU is a Delta Electronics DPS-250AB-22 D 250W ATX:

I wanted to know if i can change that psu for a Cooler Master 600W SATA ( ), i want to change my psu because i want to buy a Nvidia Geforce 9800 Gt 512mb Ddr3, from what I have read that psu is enough for the 9800gt. I don't really know if that psu has all the connections necessary for my pc I want to know if i can install it without problems.

Thanks in advance.

Hello jlfr;
Your system with a 9800GT would only need a good 400W PSU.
That CM eXtreme Power Plus 600 PSU isn't an especially good PSU. Here is a review
What other PSUs do you have access to? You have a website you like where you shop for PC parts?

I really don't have a lot to choose from, what about this one:, I am from Germany and the website i shop from is in german only. Can you recommend my another psu? i can find mostly corsair`s and CM.

I had your same exact problem, and I upgraded to a Tacens Valeo III 500W

I reccomend the tacens, its great
Valeo III has 80plus bronze, and 0db technology

Corsair is a brand that has a reputation for high quality power supplies that consistently earn high marks in technical reviews. They are reliable, stable, and come with a 5 year warranty (in the USA).
