I'm helping my friend put in a new power supply.
He has this computer: http://reviews.cnet.com/Sony_VAIO_Di...-30904887.html
And recently he's added a video card, and is having power problems. He has a 300-350 watt power supply in it right now, but that isn't enough power.
Now, all the power suppliers I can buy locally at best buy, etc. look something like this
His motherboard has the big long plugin (the like 12-16 wire one that is all on one plastic stick that you put in the motherboard)
and he has a seperate one that plugs in right beside it. It is a 3 wire (white blue and black). All the powersuppliers I've seen do not include this wire. Does it have a special name, or does anyone know where I can order one online.
***His motherboard did not come w/ a manual so I don't know the maker of the motherboard, but the model number is "P35D-VL"
|white blue black|
----------------- (It kind of looks like the power supply shape of the floppy drive)
*edit - I'm looking for one that is 450 or more watts
