Now I want to upgrade to a better video card...one that is quiet yet affordable. I'm not a gamer but I don't want a sluggish system. But first it is my understanding I will need a better power supply. My question is, what PSU will fit and work with this DELL system?
There are a number of replaceable PSU's that fit to the specific plugs of your system. You can replace it easily - open it up and take a look. Better yet, your graphics card , is it built into the motherboard? (Says integrated, so, I think it is).
If so, you'll have to find info on the PCI slots you have available. You should have atleast two or three available.
