Q: Can I upgrade the power supply on this desktop? – Asus Essentio CH5275-AR003

I am looking to upgrade the video card with a GeForce 9800 card but it requires a PSU of at least 550 watts. If I purchase a new PSU that holds 550 watts, will I be able to install it on this desktop? Will I have to remove the old one and install the new one? How does it work? Also, will I have to remove the old video card to replace it with a new one? Not sure with this specific desktop.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

How can I figure out what power cord I ned for my external hard drive? 

by on March 5, 2013

Q: I have an External Hard Drive. I have no idea the brand or model. There is nothing written on the actual drive. I have lost the AC adapter. Or the thing that plugs it into the wall.
I know it is easy to get another one, except the cord that is needed is not a normal cord. The place where it plugs into the back of the hard drive doesnt look like a normal AC plug. It looks more like an S-Video plug.

What is the name of the cord that I need?
