Is this new power supply good? will it fit in my computer?

this is the new power supply that i am looking to buy: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=17-148-027&SortField=0&SummaryType=0&Pagesize=10&PurchaseMark=&SelectedRating=-1&VideoOnlyMark=False&VendorMark=&IsFeedbackTab=true&Page=3#scrollFullInfo

i don't know much about power supplies but i also want a cheap one (less than $50) that delivers a minimum of 450W to power a new GPU i'm buying (GTX 650 Ti BOOST)
i am also not sure if it will fit in my computer case because the dimensions for my current PSU is 150mm x 140mm x 86mm, but this new power supply's dimensions are 5mm bigger (its 150mm x 145mm x 86mm), please someone help because im really scared that if it fries, it might take the rest of my computer with it

if it helps, this is my computer: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?objectID=c03520537&lang=en&cc=us&taskId=135&contentType=SupportFAQ&

  1. Skimming out on the PSU is a bad decision. It is a very crucial part of your system. It is also arguably the most important part of your entire computer. A bad PSU can easily crap out and die. And not only will it die, it can also cause your other parts to die.

    Having said that, I don't know any good sub-$50 PSU. And your Apevia PSU is crap. Not trying to be mean here and if I disrespected you in any way, I apologize. It's not personal and not intentional. Just trying to inform you.
  2. Absolutely not! Apevia psu's are junk and should be avoided.

    The best I can do is the Corsair 500W. for $66 after shipping. The Canadian site is really sticking it to you with shipping. http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139027
  3. I missed the 450W Enerrmax that Newegg had for $45 with $10 shipping. That is a decent PSU. If you are up for other sites the Enermax is $5 cheaper http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/part/enermax-power-supply-enp450ast

    NCIX is having a special that the Corsair CX750 is $50 after $20 MIR http://www.ncix.ca/products/?affiliateid=7474144&sku=75728&vpn=CP%2D9020015%2DNA&manufacture=Corsair&promoid=1304

    The XFX 450W is $50 at NCIX http://www.ncix.ca/products/?affiliateid=7474144&sku=63238&vpn=P1450SX2B9&manufacture=XFX

    Best I could do with Canadian sites.
