Power Supply Upgrade

I've heard that you can run into some problems when upgrading the power supply on a Dell (proprietary) with a non-Dell unit. Any thoughts?

We would like to go larger than a 250W supply but are not willing to pay what Dell is asking.

The main reason for this is to run a better video card.

This is a Dimension 8100, Powerleap P4 2.8GHz, 1Gb ram, Radeon 9000.

Thanks,

-Scott.

What else could you need besides what sho-dan furnished.
The power is good and the prices are definately better than OEM.
