I went to the Dell forums and a member posted this website http://www.pcpowercooling.com/home.htm This website allows you to specify which system you have and it will give you an optimal PSU. Well.. the "optimal" PSU for my dell 8200 was a silencer ATX 400 but the wattage is 300W. I was thinkin of gettin a 350W or maybe a 400W PSU for a gf fx5900. Is this PSU good or is there another that may be better for my system compatibility? Thanks.
PC Power & Cooling claim to have special Dell compatible PSU's - but I can't guarantee that. I think you'll find that most Dell's, including your 8200, come with a Dell 250W PSU - talk about kick ass power. Lordy, it makes me tremble.
All kidding aside, call PC Power and interogate the hell out of them - see if they can explain why their PSU's are "Dell compatible". If you know a local shop that has had success working on Dell's - they may be able to verify if PC power's PSU's fit - or not.
