I need a 500w or above PSU that will fit properly into a Dell XPS 420 case. I would prefer to be able to order it on a british website but I will import if the option is avaliable. Would like it to be modular aswell but it is not a requirement.

Please help. I have had no luck finding one myself.

Not familiar with cases much... But is that some kind of unusually-sized case? PSUs are generally about the same in size aren't they?

Most PSUs are, but for some reason, Dell uses an oddly sized custom made PSU in their cases, and as such, the internal housing for the 420 case is different meaning a normal PSU wouldn't fit.

Also, I would have to completely dismantle the PC just to change the PSU as most of the wires are on the opposite side of the case, under the chasis, which doesn't nativly open unless I dismantle it, which is next to impossible for me as I would have no idea how to do that.

And I have very little self confidence and funds so I am not willing to try.

Any chance you could list some sites as to where it is avaliable to buy in England not sold out?

I've already seen that one by the way. Newegg don't ship internationally, amazon.com have none left and PC World is just plain useless as normal.
