Folks,

I just picked up a Atari 65XE at a hamfest... I don't even want to know how many 6502 systems I have now between the Apples and the Commodores and the Microkim and and...

Anyway, no power supply on this. Any tips on how easy/hard it would be to wire up an existing PS to run this?

The FAQ says an Atari 65XE needs 5V DC, 1A.

If you need help with the pinout:

I don't know if you really need to tie 5V to all three pins or if one is enough. Anyway, all the Atari 600XL, 800XL and 130XE supplies should be directly compatible as indicated by the first link. If you have another kind of power supply the second link comes handy, but you would need to figure out if you really need a 7-pin DIN or if a more common 5-pin one is enough.
