I pulled the Gateway apart again, so I could get a closer look at how the hard drive is setup, and verify the dimensions of the psu, and figure out exactly which cables I need.
The measurements of the psu are a bit different than what I had previously read. It is 8.1"L x 3.8"W x 2.1"T.
It has 4 cables that I was able to identify via an online chart.
(1) 20+4 ATX Main Power Cable
(2) SATA Power Cables
(1) ATX +12 Volt Power Cable
Here's a view of the inside of the PC with everything assembled except the side cover.
Here's a view with the psu, HD and DVD drive removed.
And here's a couple pics of the strange arrangement of the HD/DVD Drive.
The power supply I posted the link to in my last post is going to work. i scoured the web and found some more detailed specs on it.
So here's my parts list...
Athena Power Mini ITX 350w Power Supply
Kingston SSDNow V+100 96GB SATA II 3GB/s 2.5" SSD with Upgrade Bundle Kit
Hitachi 250GB 2.5" 5400 RPM SATA II Hard Drive 5K320-250 (used)
Silverstone SDP08 3.5" to 2 x 2.5" Bay Converter
HIS Radeon HD 5570 Silence 2GB (128 bit) DDR3 HDMI PCI-Express 2.1 x 16 Video Card
(2) Kingston HyperX 4GB Kits (2 x 2GB each) 1333MHz (PC 10666) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM
I can do all of this for about $430. Does this all seem in order?
Would it be worth the $55 to upgrade the HD to a Hitachi 320GB 7200 RPM Drive?
What kinda of cables/adapters do I need for the hard drive setup?
