George27 Posted July 28, 2011 Share Posted July 28, 2011 You know folks I will trust the opinions of this board above others. Does anyone have any familiarity with Dells? I was pressed for time and needed something new fast so I went with a Inspiron 570. I was looking at the Dell forums and saw this post: "i have a inspiron 570 with integrated radeon 4200 graphics. i would like to get a radeon 5770, knowing i would need a new psu. i contacted dell reps several times asking questions - two reps told me the card would fit and any psu would work with the system while a third said any higher wattage psu would likely fry the motherboard. regardless, i pulled the trigger on a corsair 550watt psu from newegg. before i get it and install it, does anyone know if it will truly fry my motherboard or other components? or even if a radeon 5770 will fit in a inspiron 570 because i don't know what to think with conflicting information from dell support?" which the reply was: "The Corsair power supply and HD 5770 will both work fine in your system. You will not fry your motherboard. You could fry your motherboard if you don't take the proper precautions to prevent static electricity when installing the new components, but the PSU and card won't fry your motherboard." Have I been asleep? I was under the impression that Dell boards were modified to use a different voltage that only Dell could supply the PSU for.Thanks in advance.
