Common PSU?
by Willy / March 25, 2012 9:13 AM PDT

You want to look at the physical size and specs for Bestec model#. Once you have that in hand, you compare to any similar or direct replacement PSU. So be 100% sure the model# is what is stated on the decal/sticker located on the PSU. Then do your search. If as Robert states is correct, you maybe lucky and have a common ATX-12V type sized PSU, which many are generic to your needs. BTW, having more wattage and/or connections won't hurt.,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_qf.,cf.osb&fp=dcfb21c058468efb&biw=1309&bih=676

Thanks for that. After all the PSU's I've replaced over the years, one of the best pieces of advice I found was to get a single rail when possible.

Granddaughter's PC fails. It's got an inexpensive PSU in it now and this one at $45 net will be worthwhile to have as a spare or a substitute if I decide to upgrade the system.
