Power Supply

Power Supply,

The power supply went out on my pc, the model number is HP-P3017F3. I was able to get the computer running again with another power supply that does not fit in the box, temporary solution. Now I would like to buy a new power supply so that it fits right and have some questions:

Where can I get a replacement, at a reasonable price?
Would any local places carry these?
Should I stick with what came OEM or go with another brand?
???

Thanks!

Greg

Tiger Direct or Fry's should probably be local places that would have something you can use

In my experience when you looking at a new power supply the heavier the better. Heavier ones have more/better quality parts. Also that power supply you have is only 300watts, I would suggest something a little bigger like 400watts.

Any brand recommendations? I see a 350w at http://www.power-on.com/ea350u.html and a 550w at http://www.911forpcs.com/hp-p3017f3.html. No clue about the quality of these or the reputation of the vendors. Just what a quick search came up with.

Look at corsair, thermaltake, antec, coolmax. Stay away from rosewill. I don't like their products.
Something basic and not expensive will work.

Unless you have a big gaming machine then I would go bigger, but it's not necessary if it's just a normal desktop.

From the model number you supplied, any 400w ATX form-factor power supply should be a suitable replacement. You shouldn't have to go any higher and without knowing what is in your PC now, I'd strongly advise you not go any lower than what you are replacing.

Thanks...the power supply I am replacing has the power cord plug and the fan facing back. Is there lingo for this configuration or do I just look at pictures to see if it will work on my pc?

Any "ATX" power supply should work. Just make sure the fan isn't facing anything to block airflow.
