Anyway, the new ANTEC power supply is a very good buy at 40 bucks. Dell and other sites will sell you a wimpy 350 watt power supply for 60 bucks or more. This power supply comes with a 2 year warranty and is quiet and smooth and gives you 450 watts of power. There are two pairs of cpu power connectors, but the Dell motherboard only has room for one. Other than that, replacing the power supply was pretty straight forward. Rather than run the cables back under the tabs in the Studio 540, I opted to use the locking plastic tie that came with the new power supply to bundle them in an out of the way location. The hardest part is removing the old power supply as all of the cables are secured in 3 different tabs/grooves. Once you find all those and release them, you are home free.
ANTEC power supplies have been around for quite awhile and as long as you don't buy a bargain basement model, you will probably have good results with them.
There's really not much else to say. It has the connectors I need and well, the power supply works! What many users want to know is is the thing quiet enough. I can assure you that this unit is pretty much dead silent when in operation. In fact, most power supplies I've come across these days are very quiet as well so you really don't have to worry too much about this issue.
Many experienced PC builders can assure you that you should never, ever skimp on your power supply unit. It is one of the main component that actually gives all your hardware power and so a poorly made power supply can actually increase the chances of it ruining your computer. Although I do admit that I rarely see this, do you really want to take the chance? You could in reality save $10-$15 dollars and get a cheaper power supply but you also should understand the risk of doing so. I believe this Antec power supply is a perfect balance between it being cheap and yet still trustworthy enough for me to put in my build.
Update: A couple of weeks ago I updated my graphics card to a XFX Radeon HD 6770 which requires a minimum of 450W and I am glad to say that this power supply has still not failed me once. I am so happy with this purchase.
