Hello Forum,

I have a quick question in regards a power supply.

I have a Dell Dimension 8200 during a storm there was a power outage which toast the power supply 250watts so I went to buy another but this one was a bigger power supply a 450watts.

my question is the following does the power supply needs to be exactly the same 250watts? or it does not matter.

:4-dontkno
Please let me know if the power supply I bought is not the proper for my Dell.

Thank you very much.
Mario

Yea you should be fine. The bigger the wattage the better imo. I just recently upgraded from a 600 W to a 1000 W, which is probably overkill. All that matters is that your new, more powerful power supply has the same connectors available as your old one so you can hook it up correctly.
