Your case mounts the PSU at the bottom so you need to firstly have an understanding of whether the cables will be using will reach the headers etc. This PSU does fit your case but I would recommend a better PSU for a bit more money. But Like I said if there are NO compatibility issues with the PSU and case.

I see what you are saying. I have a micro atx motherboard and I see it having no problems reaching the ports, I just need to know if it will fit in my case/or what types of PSU will fit in my case. I am on a $100 budget for PSU im still looking for more atm.

You will have no compatibility issues, the best manufactures for PSU's in my opinion are

Corsair
XFX
Thermaltake
coolermaster

The power supply bay in that computer case is made to support standard ATX12V PS/2 Form Factor PSUs.

Physical Dimensions: 150mm W x 86mm H x 140mm D (or 5.9"W x 3.4"H x 5.5"D)

The Depth is allowed to be larger (e.g. high wattage PSUs) and still be considered an ATX12V PS/2 Form Factor PSU.

If you have the money DEFINITELY Corsair. Probably around 600W

also get a PSU that is modular makes for better cable management.

Your case takes a standard ATX psu. The standard is 86mm high, 150mm wide, and the length can vary, typically from 140mm to 180m.
Any atx psu will fit.

That said, There are better quality units. Your's seems to be a tier 4 unit on this list:

A cheap psu can become expensive if it does not deliver advertised power, or if it fails and damages other parts.
I might suggest this PC P&C silencer 500w unit. It actually has more power than the 525w unit you listed.

Cooler Master GX 650W (RS-650-ACAA-E3)

If it's so good why did it die during [H]ard|OCP's review of that PSU? The second one that Cooler Master sent to them also died due to the same problem.

I have it, I have no problems, I very much doubt wuba will be performing extreme overclocking or crossfiring 7970's

Goodbye

I'm pretty sure that the failure rate on that specific model number was high enough is why Cooler Master replaced it with the RS-650-ACAA-D3 model made by Enhance Electronics.
