Hello.

I have an HP Pavilion Elite HPE-250f desktop computer, which I boughtin 2010.


In the past, when the computer shut down all of a sudden, the reason for the shutdown was that the computer was overheating due to a lot of dust being inside the computer's fans. I opened up the computer and removed the dust from the fans, and the computer resumed proper operation.

Recently, the computer shut down, started up again, shut down again during the re-start process, and started up yet again. This time, there was no dust inside the fans. However, the power supply was very hot. So, I have come to the conclusion that the power supply may be failing.


The model number for my power supply is DPS-460DB-3A.


I have seen this power supply for sale on Amazon and eBay. Here are the listings:

https://www.amazon.com/DPS-460DB-3A-570857-001-H8-1240t-H8-1160t-H8-1050Z/dp/B08213LSTT

https://www.ebay.com/itm/143750117977?hash=item21782cba59:g:hvwAAOSw65FXsyN1


So, which listing is the most reliable? Which seller should I buy from?

Thank you for any advice.
