antec smartpower 500W is slightly bigger than my old PSU

I am replacing my old 300W PSU for a nice Antec SmartPower 500 W one. I noticed that the brackets to hold the old PSU do not work with the new PSU because it is slightly longer. It fits width wise with no problems but not so much length wise. Anyone have any suggestions on some simple adjustments that can be made with brackets, etc .

  1. Since we don't have your case, we can't see what brackets you're talking about.

    Most of the systems I've dealt with have the PSU affixed to the case by 4 screws on the back panel. The bracket in front (when there is one) is just to support the PSU.

    If there's metal in the way, get a saw and cut it away I guess...
