Apart from physical dimentions are there any restrictions to installing a PSU.

Hi, I have installed several psu's in different pc's - no restrictions, other than physical size.

Cheers.

Technotiger: Thank you for your quick response. My daughter has just bought a new graphics card for her spare PC and it says the PSU should be 450/500. So installing shouldn't be a problem?. She just plays games on it.

Should be no problem, but make sure it is the same type as the old one, most are ATX and are usualy marked - but you can physically check by looking at the main motherboard plug/socket.

There are different power plugs for ATX system or should be an Adapter with it. But if it's not a Proprietary system like Dell etc then a ATX power will fit if it is a newish computer not years old. They used to be AT power supplies but you would have trouble getting on today. also if it's a Intel CPU you need one that has the four pin support plug also

OK my friend - if you are happy, don't forget the little green tick :-))

Ckeck for the Intel plug if you do not have AMD and it may need the Power adapter
