Alright so looking to upgrade my all in one gateway to a i7 3770s from my i3. Both CPUs have the same TDP (im pretty sure) which is 65w, i was told by a gateway tech that i would need to upgrade my psu (which is the AC adapter brick if im correct). Now my question is that correct, would i have to upgrade the power adapter ? Or would i be fine since they have the same adp?


Thanks in advance

Did he suggest another one or was it just another one of those service calls that their answers are just general? What I3 do you have in there anyway? Many all in ones run on mobility products.

Hi :) 

What he said was total rubbish.... power is DRAWN FROM the charger ...NOT pushed in...

Your ac is exactly the same as a laptop charger.... NOT changeable (no point)

All the best Brett :)

Well that says it all he was just freeing them from liability. You should be fine with your current one.
