Will the power supply fit?

I am building a new computer (knowing very little about them). My main question is are all PSU's measured the same way? WxLxH?

Anyway this is the computer I am building minus the current PSU on it.

This is the new PSU I am looking at, and I have no Idea if it will fit or not. (Well I know it will fit in the case, but will it fit with the motherboard?

    Yeah, he speaks the truth! Don't cheap out on a PSU, they can take everything else with them when they go. What's your max budget?
  3. Get this if your on a budget.

  4. I would really prefer to keep it under 60 bucks but the max I can go is 80. Also from what I understand I need a 600w to run my computer.

  6. Measurange, these guys are telling you the truth. The cheap power supplies can go bad in a fraction of a second and take out all the expensive components you purchased. DiaBLOtek unit have been known to explode while being tested by reputable reviewers.
  7. Diablotek makes PSU-shaped objects. They should NEVER be attached to computer components if there is any chance they will be connected to an A/C power source at the same time.
  8. Great unit by Antec , made by Seasonic and modular.

  9. Hmmm, it would appear that PCPartPicker is now blocked at work. Bummer. Anyway, if you are allowing $60-$80 for a PSU, you should be able to find a good XFX unit in that range, or a Rosewill Capstone. If you get a Corsair "CX," get a modular one, as the non-modular models were made using some inferior Samxon capacitors that don't care for heat (such as you'd find in a gamer) and may fail early.
  10. I linked a nice Antec , made by Seasonic above and it's modular.

    Good luck with your PSU search.
  11. The GX650 was summarized by HardOCP as a "polished turd in a box." Now I've heard it's been revised, but CM is not known for quality PSUs, except perhaps some of their really high-end models (and some of their latest in the I-series are supposedly being made by Seasonic). Since the company continues to sell many liar-labeled units however, I consider them dishonest and cannot ethically recommend any of their products, no matter how good.
