Hello,

I am currently living in Cambodia and bought a Dell Optiplex 980 MT and didn't research my video opinions enough. I want the replace the lame ATI 4550 and there are no PCIe connectors or any Molex connectors, all SATA. When I bought a CoolMaster supply I found out that the Dell PSU has a different, smaller power connector.

Any idea's as to what PSU can fit in the 980 MT and replace the gimped 305 with all SATA connectors?

No need for replacing the whole PSU. You'll need to get the adapter for the SATA power cables.

I got a case with a PSU bundled for my built & it had just one SATA power connector.

I Went to a local shop and they sold me one of those MOLEX-to-SATA power
adapters.

Perhaps they have some of them over there :)
