...............layman's terms please.

I have the current hardware:

Powmax: ATX mid-tower case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

350W Sparkle PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

7-n-1 Card Reader: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

AMD Athlon II X3 435: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

ASROCK AM3 Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

BioStar Radeon HD 4670: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

-Plus an old DVD drive from 2004


I would like to do a slight upgrade to this:

Samsung SSD 128GB: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA2W0...

Corsair HX series 650 Watt Certified Gold: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

My question is, will the new power supply fit into my ATX case? Will it connect to all of my old and new hardware? Is the the power supply that I posted any good? Is Corsair a reliable brand? I would like to slowly upgrade my computer. Next I will buy a motherboard and ram that will be compatible with AMD A10 processors probably this Fall, then a new graphics card this Winter.

Thank you for the help in advance.

yes, corsair is a reliable brand. but i think the PSU 650watt is to much power than the hardware. except you want to upgrade the system later. Corsair VS450 is good enough for your system.

If the PSU has too much power, will it affect the hardware? I like the Corsair HX650 watt because it is Gold Certified.

How about this PSU? This is 550w Do you think it is good???? :http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Wait a minute, the fan is on the top. Does this mean I have to drill holes on top of my machine or am I seeing this wrong?

more power than you need doesn't hurt anything (the components draw power as they need.) it just means you wasted money getting more than you needed (like $69 for 700W when you could send $39 for 500W), and can reduce your power efficiency some (maybe adding a few pennies to your electric bill).

But it won't hurt the components

PSU's don't quite have compatibility issues with hardware. and Get that corsair PSU. Also, don't put your games on a 128GB ssd unless you plan on deleting them often or buying a hard drive later. you will run out of space fast.

you don't need to drill the top of the case. the fan is on the bottom. sorry for my bad english :)  buy the corsair HX-650 if you want to upgrade the hardware later.
