I recently posted this, but i cant edit the title of my other post, so i am forced to make a new one.

My problem is, I currently have a HP Compaq 6200 MicroTower and i wanted to up the graphics of it to play games.

So i ordered a GTX 560 TI and to support it I am getting a 600W PSU

However live chat suppport on HP said putting 600W PSU onto it would make it blow out, I have left you a screenshot of part of the convosation here:



Here is my HP PC specs: http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/us/en/sm/WF05a/12454-124...

Also looking through the manual, i cant really understand this PSU page, so if it helps here it is:



My question is that can i put both the new PSU and graphics card inside the HP PC without any problems? Use the specs page to help!

Yeah. You can put it without worries.
You'll just have an extra room/watts on your PSU for any additional hardware.

No problem. ;) 
You can still trust HP support. But, it depends on the one supporting you.
That's why I'm still learning on the computer world. :)

Yeah. 560ti can handle most of games. But some massive games may have medium FPS.

You won't be able to "max out" all the games, but you'll be able to play most games on above average settings and playable FPS's.

Well, you can understand why the big manufacturers like Dell and HP would prefer their customers not swap parts in their computers, just like you can imagine why Newegg would prefer folks not RMA their video cards. But its very poor policy to *lie* to your customers. I can only assume the call center has its own local mythology.

Then again, the airlines have been lying to us for years about why they don't want us to use portable electronics.

I think it is very wrong, the first 2 people i talked to told me if i upgraded it to 600W my PC would stop working and it would be my fault, I think i will complain to them with all my posts and forum topics to back up my arguement!
