And if not, be sure to get the one that Slaymate found, since you can return rather easily to NewEgg... If you end up doing this, I would greatly appreciate you popping back on here and posting the results... From the looks of it, the PSU should be pretty easy to replace.. Looks like a couple of screws. The only thing I would be sure to look out for, when you are disconnecting the old one, is where all of the connections are to the mobo. You have to be sure you repalce all of the power to all locations on the mobo.
Ok thanks dcusick... I actually had her order the PSU from newegg today and I should be have it before friday and I will be sure to let you know.
