Those are nice links....IF YOU DON'T OWN THE 537 DESKTOP!!!

If you notice, there are NO, yeah NO, PSU's for that model desktop over 300W. And don't buy from Dell. They suck. The other caveat is...Is your 537 slimline? If its slimline, many of the PSU's advertised to be compatible with the 537s are NOT compatible with the slimline model.

Hey, I'm in the same boat. That's how I know so much about this one particular topic. Check out my thread: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/358515-33-upgrade-tow...

I bought 3 new games to conquer this summer. I have played all 3 of them for a total of about 4 hours with horrible graphics issues. I have spent a sum total of 43 hours calling Dell Support, looking on line, going to Best Buy, etc.

Sucks don't it.

Hey! I found what I believe to be the only PSU ever made that not only fits the slimline 537s, but it's 320W!!! That's over 300W! 320W KDM. Check it out.


he said he has the 537 (mini-tower) not the 537s (which is the slim line PC)



this antec is solid and plenty of power for the ATI 4850

the corsair 430w is a budget PSU still capable of powering the ATI 4850

either PSU will fit.
