    ass holes...
    Surely you can get one directly from Dell?
    or maybe they'd prefer you to buy a new computer from them.......

    I haven't got a clue, contact Dell and ask if you can buy one from them, or if that power supply is right... I don't deal with Dell for the very reason that they try to monopolise.

    What kind of dell do you have? is it an inspiron or a optiplex and what model number is it?

    Chances are it will not fit as dells use bespoke parts for each model but i can try and find out for you.

    Simple answer to this problem: Electric Drill.

    Just drill the holes for the new PSU, easy enough.

    Check the pinout of the original PSU if you're doing this, not sure if it's still the case but there was a time that Dell PSU's had standard 20 pin ATX connectors but with a non standard pin configuration.

    You can source parts direct from dell for not too unreasonable prices if you ring them up.
