I plan on upgrading the power supply for my Gateway DX4300-15e, and I seemed to find a website which supposedly sold replacement/upgrade power supplies. This is the website/the link of the website.

http://www.cputopia.com/psu-replacement-gate-gateway-dx...

So my question(s) are is this website trustable, and is this power supply actually compatible with the desktop? Thanks for your help. The reason I don't really trust the website is because the price seems too good to be true.

More about : compatible

I am fairly sure thats just a standard ATX power supply you can buy anywhere. Also it doesn't give a make so its most likely poor quality. If you just want to replace the 300W one it came with get this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... $29.99



Thanks, but I'm making sure, is the amount of cables/cords each power supply has standarized? And do you know if there are any other PSU's like that that are around 500w?

yeah - check out newegg.com and do a search.

3| Stick to brand manufactured PSU's, they are quality makes and have a good tolerance over time. f you want to get a cheap PSU, be my guest, but remember we didn't support getting the cheap psu to create the 4th of july in your rig (and your wallet)

Want some makers narrowed down?
xfx
corsair
seasonic
antec
thermaltake

all of them make 550W PSU's. Look out for the xfx 550W Core edition full wired PSU

Edit: just took a look at your rig - go for a this 450W unit http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

or this 550W unit (in case you want to keep your PSU and make a future GPU/CPU/Mobo upgrade
