I got a new Nvidia GE Force 8500 GT video card for X-Mas. My Sony Vaio PCV-RS720G has a power supply with a max of 200W. Does any one have a suggestion for a new power supply? I've been told that a standard size will not fit, and I'll need to get a "micro". Also the video card is rated for 300W.

Thanks for any help

Here is a link to the New Egg page:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList....p;name=MicroATX

I see the largest is 400 watts but there is also one at 350 watts. Check the customer reviews!


Good luck.

Thanks for the info. I've had several people sugest newegg to me. (I joined this chat thru their site)
Having never done this before, I was also hoping that some who has installed a new power supply in to a Vaio could help out.

Well, I just did a search of sorts for info...seems that it is not a typical ATX PS and your manual doesn't provide details.

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=S...0G+power+supply and http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-doc...S720G&LOC=3

A picture of the current power supply would help immensely, if you can post it (and provide accurate dimensions).

3rd link lists dimensions for the units
Have you measured to make sure the graphics card will fit? sometimes you need a low-profile

sorry to take so long to get back, didn't want to even look at my computer last night.
I cant get good clear pics. so I just measured.

My current power supply is about 4.5 in. long, 3.5 in. hight and 6.5 in wide.

I do have about 1.5 in from the rear of the power supply to the rear of the drivers if that would make any difference.

I have not even taken the new video card out of the box yet. Dont want to risk any return policy.
