you could buy a spu from alien ware they do sell them like replacement parts, say the computer was given to you but the psu is blown. and your buying a newone from them itl probably cost you as much as a case, and im betting your more likely to sell your current psu then the alienware case.

We didn’t know, we just sell the cases, we don’t have info on if certain power supplies don’t fit

uhmmm sounds like an issue. 28 bucks is pretty worthless for all the trouble...maybe go with what amd gt player said and buy an alienware PSU from alienware and sell your current one....or try to sell the case and buy a new one

well they said they could sell me a power supply at a discounted price. So I am waiting at the price they will give me.

Lol, they probably profit from the power supplys rather than the cases (some trick they do prob)

I am not even sure if i can sell the case for 80 bucks, it is badly scratched and missing 1 optical drive cover, and a floopy cover. and an alien face on one side.

Man, should have stoled one from alienware stand on comic-con
