Do I upgrade my Power Supply
\015 Just want to know if I should upgrade my Dell GX260 Optiplex Power Supply.Disn't really do much-maxed RAM out to 2GHz,Installed 2.8GHz Northwood to replace 2.4GHz Northwood,NVIDIA GeForce FX 5500 256MB video card and (CREATIVE) BLASTER Audigy SE 24 bit sound card.Computer runs OK,but not sure.The PS in there now is the stock one I believe.Says: Model G20160 NPS-250 KB A REV :03. Input: 100-120V~19.0A 200-240V~14.5A 50-60HZ. Output: 250W MAX---MAX Combined Power on +5V and +3.3V output is 170W. THANK YOU for your comments/input!\015
A new power supplu can't hurt anything so long as it's right for your Dell. Some Dells with ATX power connectors are wired in a propiretary way. Make sure which way yours is wired before making the buy.
A 250 watt power supply is on the low side. If you need a new power supply I would consider getting at least a 400 watt one as a replacment. The cost difference is not that much. If you are experiencing no problems as is, leave it alone. Your 250 watt Max is likely peak and would not work long at that watt rating. If the power suply becomes a problem you wil know it soon enough, as it will likely just quit.
