Conversation with dell online

Just had a great conversation with a DELL representative online, asked about upgrading my PSU so I can get a new graphics card, was told that they recommend my Dimension 5000 can take no PSU upgrade as it might damage the components

Does anyone know where I can get an upgrade for it as it is only 305 watts the graphics card I've seen recommends at least 375 watts

It may be difficult as Dell use special PSUs in many of their home PCs - they have connections that only fit their motherboards.

Yeah I know but surely i must be able to get one somewhere

I'd take their warning seriously. Dell would presumably love to sell you a non-standard, expensive psu if they could??
