    Any ATX form factor power supply will fit. The important thing to keep in mind is how much power you might need. If you add the power requirements of an optical drive or two, the CPU, the CPU fan, sound card, and most importantly-the video card, than you definitely want to make sure not to get an underpowered PSU.

    That can lead to weird performance, like random shutdowns, peripherals that die after a short while. With the latest video cards drawing quite a bit of power both to power the GPU and the cooling fan, you could conceiably double normal power requirements.

    In most cases 400-450 watts is a good starting point.

    Good luck and don't forget to select the best answer!

    I agree with the first answer. I personally use thermaltake as far a brand name. Remeber, you get what you pay for.
