  • Old Dell Power Supply

    Hey all. I have an old Dell Optiplex GX150 that has been laying around. I am leaning towards using it as my car pc. However, the only thing holding me up at the moment is which power supply. Only because I cannot seem to find the specs for power consumption. The huge list that has every processor made does not show up anymore on this site.

    Pentium 3 1GHz
    512MB RAM

    Pretty much the rest of the math I can do. Just can't find this small piece of info

    Thanks

    I don't think they make steam generators to suit that model anymore.

    What OS do you intend running?

      LOL yea I know it's ancient. I'll be using XP of course.

      Found a few older builds around the net and each one was using the M2-ATX successfully.

          Yea thanks. My current standard power supply rating is 200. I am wanting considerations for a DC-DC power supply.

            I would recommend the DSATX from the mp3car store or the opus 360 for sale by a forum member in the classifieds the dsatx is 220watt and the other is 360 watt. those old babies didn't worry about power draw and how much they used. Can you not find something a little more current to use then a p3 1ghz. SNO

              Thanks.
              Yea I'm sure I can find something more current. My 1st intention was to come out cheap.

              I'm actually leaning towards building from scratch instead of trying to use old stuff I already have. Will come out a few dollars more but satisfied with the result.

              Debating Gigabyte mobo with celeron 847 1.1GHz($85) and VIA board with 1.6G,800MHz($60). And find a good dc-dc power supply for either
