Power Supply For Dell Dimension 4300s

by redrider1957 / September 30, 2005 9:45 AM PDT

I have just purchased a Dell 4300s and I need to purchase a power supply. If you have any recomended sites or address where I could find one that would be great. Nothing really powerful, just one that will work.

If what you say is true...

Dell should provide you a new one, free of charge, or for a very minimal charge

nevertheless, you need to contact Dell as i'm guessing that machine is not using a standard size unit, and only Dell can provide the unit you need (or you could go straight to their supplier, PC Power & Cooling)

Hello redrider1957,

I have had bad experience with Dell Customer Service which includes being put on hold for more than an hour. Not acceptable. Dell will jack up the price, too. I would go to the link below and purchase a Power Supply from them. Their a real good site to order from. Calling dell is not a smart thing to do. Next time go for something besides Dell. Here is the link: To be safe, get a 400watt power supply. Great prices and deals. And super, super fast shipping. Comes earlier than expected. I personaly would recommend 500watts. That's plenty of power.

Good Luck.



Take a look at this one. If your on a budget just to let you know, this one below is only $55.00!!!!!!
That's a bargin!

Good Luck again and let us know how it turns out.

dells use proprietary power supplies so putting any atx powersupply could fry your whole setup...either contact dell or buy a powersupply from pc power & cooling.

either way its going to be expensive.
