Hi All,

I am after a new PSU for my desktop PC to power my nVIDIA Geforce 8800 Ultra graphics card.

My PC is a Dell Dimension 9150 with the standard 375w PSU, which is not powerful enough to power my card, even with 2 PCI-E connected to it (the card warns me it is not recieving enough power).

I am after the cheapest PSU with approx 500w that comes with 2 PCI-E connections that will fit my case (I believe it will need to fit the BTX case).

Can anyone help?

Thanks Alot

cheers Delluser. I'll look at that Corsair one you suggested. I've found the dimensions so I'll measure my current one to see if it fits ok!

thanks alot.

It will fit, but will leave a gap because it's not as tall as the Dell psu

Was my first thought, I'm just not big on "pig-tailed" pci-e power connector's.

I'm a fan of modular PSUs myself :D  In fact I had the same 620 watt Corsair as in the picture! :love:  Never gave me a minutes trouble!
