HP Touchsmart 610-1150xt power cord Upgrade

Hi community. I've had this wonderful AIO for about a decade and wanted to know if the actual external power supply could be upgraded from the 150w? Are there other larger ones out there? I don't need links, just the specs would be great. I've upgraded the CPU to a i7 2600k and i'm thinking of adding more power hungry RAM and maybe an upgrade of the mxm video card.

 

Thanks

Mkbean

Most RAM uses less than 2 volts, and much less than 0.5 amperes, which would consume well under ONE watt, out of the 150 available watts.

 

If you replace your old "spinning" disk-drive by a SSD (Solid state Device), you will consume  less wattage, and get much faster input/output for the SSD.

 

P.S. I replace automobile tires before they are 10 years old. I recommend that you replace your disk-drive, before it "blows" like a bald tire is likely to blow, at the worst-possible time.

Thanks for the reply. I've replaced the HD for an SSD.
