you don't like antec? The only reason is that I am not sure if the xfx psu will fit in my case

antec is great aswell, and just about any psu will fit in any case, but to be safe, what is your case?

The Antec is too long for your case get the XFX 550 I posted above above it's OEM sized and will fit.

5.5" x 5.9" x 3.4"

Yes the Antec is too long it's 6.3" and leaves you no room to move and manage your cables.

It will be too tight to work with your cables.

You need the OEM size of the XFX posted above.
