Just look at the pics of the PSU and then compare it to your existing one. If they have their bits in the same places (fan, power plug & switch) then you will be good to go!

well i bought the SUNBEAM PSU and it did not fit, i shipped it back to Newegg...

so i ended up calling sony to see if they had any high end PSUs to replace the one i have, and they do not have any upgrades.

I am very dissapointed, i hope i do not have to change my computer case just to fit a new PSU.

Why? Sony cases are crap anyway.
Honestly, why spend like $150 on a sony 350 watt PSU, when you could get a much better one for half the price?

You throw down the money for a high end vidcard and then you buy a psu to run it and you send it back cause it doesn't fit?! That makes no sense, it as simple as "do you want the video card to work"? If yes, then you get that psu back and either find a way to make it fit or get a new case, it's that easy. If no then send the vidcard back too and save you some money, which is more important, the vio case or the X1800? Heck I'd just run the psu out of the case untill I could get another one, at least that way my pc would work....

the fuq? thanks for the support... anyways


anyways im thinking about moving all my parts to another case...so sreturning that PSU was a big mistake, but i just didnt want my return expiration day to pass by so i sent it back hoping that sony would have a PSU for me. I called them up (Sony) and they told me they did not have a powersupply.

I do not want to send the card back, i really want it to work. The problem is my PSU has a port in the back that i plug in my speakers to, meaning that if i do install another PSU i cannot use my speakers...which doesnt matter because i use my headset when im gaming...

i asked a repair shop how much it would cost to swap all my parts to another case and they said $140!!!

and im guessing im going to spend another $100 on a case, and i have to buy new fans since my vaio has a specific design and will have to buy new ones to fit my case.

u dont have to spend 100 bucks to get a case.... go to www.newegg.com and find a cheap case, most cases will come with all the fans that u need.

Just read this thread now, and its pretty obvious to anyone whos seen a Sony Vaio system/case, that a standard ATX PSU will not fit. Really annoys me to see people always advising "go out and buy this, and this" without even considering this particular situation (I'm looking at you Some idiot).

Now you'd have to double check this yourself, but theres a good chance that a MicroATX PSU is what you need to fit inside the Sony case, so you could get one of those, they're more expensive and not as powerful, but a good one would be enough to power your system.

If you plan on swapping all the hardware into a different case,just remember that your motherboard is also not standard ATX, its either MicroATX (which is fine) or a non standard size, and might not have the right attachments for a standardized case. Good luck with the system, my best advice is next time, don't but an OEM (prebuilt) system, especially from Sony.

yes well it does suck buying a nice graphic card, then finding out that i do not have enough power to run it. so i would have to go out and buy a psu finding out that there are none to fit the alignments of my case, then heading back to sony to see if they have a psu for my computer, then finding out they do not have any upgrades. i think the only choice i would have is to swap cases. now knowing that it could be a problem due to my motherboard, so i would have problems with those attachments. hmm... what to do? what to do? im thinking i would have to reorder that SUNBEAM PSU off newegg, and buy a new case. hopefully everything can be removed from my case and added to the new one without any problems, but then again i would have to pay up to $200 just to get everything installed only because i do not have a lot of experience with computers and i may not have the right tools, and oh yes not to forget that i do have to pay to buy a new case ... but i do appreciate the help and feedback i am getting on the thread
