Default Replacing Dell PSU

My dad's Dell Dimension 5150's PSU has friend and I need to replace it. It has a 305W PSU but I hear that Dell uses non-standard parts in its computers. Can I just use any power supply from Newegg to replace the current one or is there something special I should be looking out for?

Default Re: Replacing Dell PSU

play it safe and call someone like antec and ask if their power supply will work in your dell.
the older dells did require a dell power supply or an adapter. this may not be a issue on newer dells.
