I currently have an HP Media Center PC model number m270n with these specifications: Motherboard: ASUS P4SD with a uATX form factor, Pentium 4HT 2.8GHz Video Card: GeForce FX 5200 with 128 MB memory, 8X AGP, with S-Video and DVI out Power Supply: Micro ATX-V200HP 200 Watts I want to upgrade my power supply and Graphics card to these: PNY GeForce 6800 GS / 256MB GDDR3 / AGP 8x / DVI / VGA / TV Out / http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite... KDM M6400/7400 400W MicroATX P4 12V Dual Fan Power Supply http://www.directron.com/directron/m6400.html Does anyone know if these will be acceptable with my current setup. I'm concerned about the following: motherboard, which is uATX, and the graphics card says it must be compatiable with an ATX 2.0, is it? graphics card size, I can't find the dimensions of that card but am concerned that it won't fit power supply: will that power supply prove acceptable Thanks very much for reading and answering More about : graphics card cleeve March 17, 2006 2:55:11 PM uATX= MicroATX, and that probably requires a very small power supply. Not sure though, maybe someone else here could help out for sure? The card is a good choice, everything else looks great. Ian March 17, 2006 3:02:35 PM Yeah, but the power supply he has selected is uATX form factor, so it should work... The power supply manufacturer says this: Quote:It will fit most micro ATX cases except those that uses mini-ATX power supplies. So if the one you currently have is a Micro ATX, and the new one is the same, it should work, no?

The dimensions are a little off from my current power supply but I think it will fit. I'm a little concerned about the dimensions of the card and if it will fit in my case. Hopefully it does anyway.
