    i was just wondering what type of power supply would be compatible....it came with a 300W i was looking to get like a 450W or more ....but i need at least 350W to run the video card i just bought.....any specifications on power supplies that will be compatible would be great then i could shop around for a good deal on one

    Any standard ATX one will do with a 24pin motherboard connection and a 4 pin CPU connection. Both those should come as standard.

    As long as its a major brand like; Anec, Thermaltake, Coolermaster, Corsair.... Corsair has one for $55... cheapest I'd recommend.

    Be careful about the size. I put an Ultra 600W PSU in my pavillion (had 2 fans, one on the front of the psu, and one on the back). It was a very tight fit. There was barely an inch between the PSU and the DVD drive
