Apart from physical dimentions are there any restrictions to installing a PSU.

Hi, I have installed several psu's in different pc's - no restrictions, other than physical size.

Technotiger: Thank you for your quick response. My daughter has just bought a new graphics card for her spare PC and it says the PSU should be 450/500. So installing shouldn't be a problem?. She just plays games on it.

Should be no problem, but make sure it is the same type as the old one, most are ATX and are usualy marked - but you can physically check by looking at the main motherboard plug/socket.

There are different power plugs for ATX system or should be an Adapter with it. But if it's not a Proprietary system like Dell etc then a ATX power will fit if it is a newish computer not years old. They used to be AT power supplies but you would have trouble getting on today. also if it's a Intel CPU you need one that has the four pin support plug also

woodchip. Thank you also. The PC is two years old. So your advice is appreciate.

OK my friend - if you are happy, don't forget the little green tick :-))


Hi woodchip.

Ckeck for the Intel plug if you do not have AMD and it may need the Power adapter
