Nuts...I wanted a no-brainer
I was hoping you wouldn't say that
I was hoping that there was a manufacturer to go to that said here, buy this one, as it fits exactly and has the plugs I need for this machine.
I will do as you have suggested. The measurements would be easy but wouldn't the bolt pattern also be important as the size may be the same but still would not line up. Guess I would have find one at Newegg and then contact the manufacturer for specifics. Oh....why couldn't it be easier
Too bad there isn't a site that scans your computer like at Crucial Memory and be able to tell me exactly what I need.
And thank you for the link to the video. He makes it look so easy as I am sure it is. I think I will want to leave all the plugs connected, remove the existing PSU and set it as near as the connected wires will allow. Install the new PSU and then one by one remove and replace each plug so I don't forget which goes where.
One other question...Is there limits of how big a Power Supply that the Motherboard can handle? Is there a chance to over power and burn it out?
Curses...when it comes to computers I try not to use my brain tooo much as it just gets in the way.
