Was wondering if this PSU would be good for my computer http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681... as far as compatibility, and if not can someone recommend a good one that's 600w, and also a good video card, something around 200 bucks that would be good with the PSU.

Specs:
Intel Core i5 2320 @ 3.00GHz
GeForce 9500 GT
8 GB DDR3 SDRAM
300w power supply

full specs can be founded on this link http://us.gateway.com/gw/en/US/content/model/DT.GE0AA.0...

That is a good PSu for your system, but an hxh550w would be cheaper and the same or better quality. Grab an hd7950 to go with it. MAKE SURE The GPU will fin in the case before you buy it.

Could you send a link for it, and does it have to be the exact dimensions for the PSU, because the one I currently have is 5.75 in width, 3.25 in height, and 6 in depth.

That should be xfx not hxh. Also, it will fit in our case. Don't worry.

It isn't bad, but I would stick with antec, XFX, Corsair, seasonic. That said, it is not a bad unit.

That is a good unit. It will easily fit.

All of these units will fit without issue. PSUs are a standard size.

Yes, it is a good card. It should run most all modern games at high settings and some on max.
