Hello,
I plan to replace my old Graphics Card possibly with a GTX 460 or HD 6850 so I will require a new Power Supply. I would be grateful if someone could recommend some good

PSUs that would be compatible with a Dell Dimension 9200/XPS410. I am based in the UK and want a power suppy from 600W-850W, my budget is £50 - £125. Thanks.

500 watt's with a pair of pcie connectors would be plenty
Antec EA, Corsair CXv2
You'll need to play with wire management, nothing will match the Dell psu's cable layout

You will not need to replace the PSU - I have had a GTX260 Core 216 (171w at load) in mine and it was fine. Also fine is my HD5850 which draws 151w at load.
Both the GTX460 1GB and the HD6850 draw less power than the GTX260!

Thanks for the advice but I have since upgraded to OCZ - 700W ModXStream Pro ATX Power Supply Unit and a HD6850 Graphics Card.
