    Laptops are harder to guide on simply because they should tailored to you and not a general good.

    your current one should do fine.
    My current PSU isn't modular.

    Well, generally people who appreciate modular power supplies are neat freak wire management whores or something along those lines. So I figured my previous post would be enough for you to grasp. Since it wasn't I'll elaborate...

    I'm turning into a wire management whore, and I want a modular PSU to upgrade my system. Since I'm going to be upgrading to a modular PSU I figured that I'd up the wattage as well for any future expansion.

    +5V = 22A
    +3.3V = 17A
    +12VA = 18A
    +12VB = 18A
    -12V = 1A
    +5Vfp = 2A
    So my Dell's 305 watt PSU can't handle a hefty upgrade like a 9800 GT or HD 4830, so should I get this: http://www.pcpower.com/products/desc...ell/index.html

    It's only got one +12V rail...but decent wattage on it without going overboard. $80 is a bit much, though. Is the brand known to be reliable?

    One 12V rail is fine if there's lots of amperage on it, and in this case it is.

    PC Power & Cooling is a good brand.

    Well it's made for Dell cases so it's going to be more expensive than standard ATX PSUs. Is there any standard PSUs that might be small enough for my Dell?

    I've been considering a new video card for a while, and so I was looking at the cards you suggested to update my ancient card.

    But... i guess there's PCIE2.0 now?.. I've never been too deep in this stuff, but I'm pretty sure I have just an older PCIE 1.0 or 1.1 (my mobo is like 4 years old now)

    do PCIE2.0 cards work in a PCIE1.0 slot? or would I have to upgrade my mobo too?

    My current video card is a Nvidia GeForce 6200 SE or somethin like that... 64MB.... and I was looking at the EVGA GeForce 9800 GTX that you listed up there.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130339

    If I get that, will the difference between 1.1 and 2.0 be that big of a difference? Or will I still be happy because it will make my current card look like crap compared to this... if it works?
