Do you get a special deal if you turn in your man-card before the end of the fiscal year?

look on the box or a website and see what size of a PSU you need, you probably only need like a 500w PSU though, but i don't know. and you only need a new soundcard if you dont have any sound coming out of your computer.

with a 7300gs 400watts will be fine. But I can't recommend that psu.

You will also have to find out if your motherboard will take a different psu. It may be proprietary and will only take a dell psu.

Yah Dell uses a proprietary connector, you can purchase an adaptor to use a normal ATX power supply.

Haven't looked around but this site has it:

i'm pretty sure the psu comes with the propriety connector and it's not an ATX psu it's a dynex but i dunno if that matters or whatnot....

dynex is the brand, atx is the form factor. You should check your case as well to see if it is micro atx.

And make sure it comes with a propriety connector because I highly doubt it does.
