So does that mean that upgrading should be ( for the most part ) fine?

That is not what I said, what is the Dell computer model you wish to upgrade the power supply?

He had to get an adapter AND its sitting OUTSIDE the case.

But Quazare said that he upgraded his power supply.

Rangemeladue

Quazare upgraded the power supply, by installing the replacement Inspiron 3650 power supply, not internally, but by installing the power supply outside the case and running wiring though the case to all the connections inside the case, this not very satisfactory solution to use for a PSU upgrade.

Quote:  "I am currently running a 500w EVGA PSU outside of the case. Not pleasing to the eyes, but gets the job done. Next stop, GPU upgrade!"

Yeah, no way can you fit a standard psu in this case, maybe a tfx, but I imagine even that would be tight.

Hey guys, very happy to report that I was able to install an ASUS GTX 960 4gb video card with 100% success. Games are playing at much higher rates and I am very pleased.

Would be interesting to SEE a picture of how this is done.

Especially of the card inside the case and the power supply outside.

Hi, I was wondering how your upgrade has been since your recent upgrade. I recently upgraded my 3650 today and noticed I had a hard time closing the case because the PCI-E cable was blocking it. Did you have the same issue when completing the upgrade? The card and all are running just fine for me.

Yeah, everything is working fine for me. I really didn't have a problem closing the case, but it was certainly snug. Best of luck, Mike
