I am trying to get hold of a 200w micro atx sfx power supply unit in NZ for an HP Pavilion 4416 which currently only has 100w. Can anyone inform me of retailers in NZ who supply these types of psu's? Specifically the small form factor power supply units. Many thanks.

Are you at all interested in second hand ones?

if i remeber correctly those psu's where a custom job. you should be able to get an origanal from hp parts suppliers.

if your wanting to upgrade the psu i suggest you simply buy a whole new case. it will proberly cost less and you will have more room, better cooling (be carefull that the cpu may only have a passive cooling), more bays to install cd drives into etc.

Yes Mike, second hand would do just fine.

Smackeral! No wonder HPs don't work very well, if they only use 100w PSUs!

These days, 200w is borderlining on too little power. That's my understanding of course. I think you should consider 250w, unless the particular HP model is older and doesn't require much juice (the more add ons, the more power it requires).
