Thread: power supply dead
05-23-2006, 01:31 PM #1bakwoizGuestpower supply dead
I have a powermac g4 533MHZ with a 338Watt power supply
The power supply recently died so i went online looking for a new one a found the cheapest one at 190 dollars. I know pc power supplies can run as low as 30 bucks and wanted to know if I am looking in the wrong place for the mac power supply.

Couldn't you just use a cheap one you could buy at Fry's? That sounds outrageous for a power supply.
