    Hey guys,

    wondering if I can swap out the PSU can be swapped out with a generic PSU. I heard that dell's need their own proprietary PSU.

    Lights are on, fans are going, beeps are beeping, but no one's home..........

    Thanks

    Dell changes the wiring around on the board connector but beyond that they are ATX powersupplies.

    Dell will sell you one if you're not under warranty.

    yeah, I am kinda in need of one too. got one from g-maw and it had no CPU heat sink and no PSU. I see some on ebay for prices from $13 to $50.
