Hi people can you please tell me if a Compaq dc7600 will take a standard size psu or if I can buy one somewhere that's more powerful than the 365W installed
Solved! Go to Solution.

What is the exact product number for your PC? I have seen some CMTs model spared with a 500 watt PSU but I don't know if it will work in your PC.
You still want a bigger graphic card per your other post?

Hi again Big_Dave
yeah I'm getting a graphics card when i get paid (only on-board at the moment,just checking to see if a normal size psu would fit, if I do both probably wont have to upgrade for a long while, done alot of browsing on graphics cards and the new ones are pretty low power draw as long as I'm not aiming too high (which I'm not). there's a few numbers on the PC, I'll give all of them as I'm not sure which one,
on cpu fan HP P/N: 381865-001
on case CZC63915VW
inside case 379340-004
hope this is one of them,perhaps if it is you could inform me which exact model i have as 2 with pentiom D on HP website

I did the cross-references, and nailed down your DC7600 as a CMT model. The power supply number I found are 381023-001 and 379294-001. The actaul dimensions, according to my sources, is 5.9 x 5.9 x 3.9 inches.
See here 365W:http://www.thebestpartinc.com/ps-6361-4hf.html
Appears to be 5.9W x 3.9H and 5.9 Depth into case.
Standard ATX PSU's are 5.9W x 3.4H and 5.5" Depth into case.
Big_Dave and Paul are, IMHO, experts on this situation, having already commented to you, here:

thanks for the reply, after reading your post and looking around on the net it does seem that my psu is larger than a standard atx psu i really dont understand the thinking behind this, I checked out the link for the 480w but at $65.99 plus postage from the states may be a bit much (they dont even list UK in their postal zones)

thanks for the link this would be perfect apart from the price (£109) but bookmarked the page anyway, decided on this graphics card Radeon HD6570 for the pc .I believe it's pci ex 2.1 but amd say it'll work in 2.0 also checked with this site
thanks for all your help (and everyone else's)
