    Question on power supplies

    I was at www.pcpowercooling.com and looking at their powersupplies and they have 3 types. Slim (assumably AT), ATX, and Dell. WTF? Does Dell have its own connector type? Can I use a Dell p/s with my mobos? Just wondering cuz I have a Dell and I want to get rid of the mobo and use a BP6
    It said "requires Windows 95 or better," so I installed Linux.

    Dell, like many OEMs, have their own power supply type. Often their ATX machines will have the standard power connectors and one more that looks just like one of the old AT style power connectors.
