Gday Waytoglow ,
I have been unable to find a image of the back of the computer case, so if possible, can you take a pick showing the PSU.
We need to know if it is at the top of the case or the bottom and which side the power cord plugs in.
Is the upgrade to support a particular video card? brand/model please. Or you just want a PSU with higher wattage?
This is the existing, > http://us.estore.asu...t_detail&p=5628
I noticed that there are more than one variant of the ASUS Essentio CM6730, these include the CM6730, CM6730 - 05 and CM6730 - 06, to help iammykyl with recommending the most appropriate PSU for you can you confirm the exact model that you have, the only images that I could find showing the rear of the case are the CM6730 - 06 model which show the PSU to be a generic top mounted PSU that has an external facing fan, please expand the Newegg photo gallery to view the additional images and then confirm whether or not your PSU is mounted the same, images to view are here
NB: JFYI, the difference between the various models include upgraded processors (i3 to i5) and the output of the PSU, the present PSU is 350W but the model at the attached link has a 300W PSU which suggests that it is not the model that you have.
Thanks for responding guys!
The exact model that i have is a CM6730-08 desktop with the PSU mounted at the top. I found the exact model on ebay showing the rear here
. It has the same specs as mine such as 16gigs of RAM, intel i7-3770 at 3.4ghz, network card and Nvidia GT 630. I'm upgrading to support a new mid-range video card such as the Geforce GTX 660 or Radeon HD 7870 in the near future. 500 - 550 watts would be at what i'm looking to upgrade to.
