Any reason why you need a 750watt PSU for a microATX system?

Without knowing your hardware, I still think 750watt is way of a overkill.

Even if you have a Q6600, with 8800gt sli's , the likes of Corsair HX-620 is plenty.

Most MicroATX cases require special SFF PSUs. There are rare exceptions, but you can pretty much guess that it won't fit. PC Power and Cooling used to make PSUs specifically for upgrading Dells. Not guaranteeing it will work in a Gateway, but it's worth a shot.

It doesn't look like it.



I wouldn't try it, although you could cut space for it out of the 5.25" bays, and just move the optical drives somewhere else...

just my two cents.

It should. A 8800GT is 9in long. Just be sure the SB heatsink isn't taller than 15mm.

Or if you get the special galaxy 8800 GT, it's only 8.5"
