The Dell XPS 435T/9000 (what a name!) has a 475 W power supply. Does it use standard connectors? I'd like to be able to replace it with a beefier PS but not if I'd have to mess with the wiring. Thanks for any info you can give! Tom Lake ... 9 Dec 2009 12:08
Hi! I came across the BestBuy one first, for $550, and wanted to see what Dell offered something similar for, because I'd much rather deal with Dell. But what started at $600, by the time I added color (black won't due I'm afraid) Who is paying for this? You might be surprised what *will* do. ;-) ... 9 Dec 2009 14:23
