Hey guys, I'm about to buy a new computer and just wanted to make sure that the PSU im choosing will fit in my case. I have the dimensions of the PSU, just cant find out if it will fit in the case. This is what I'm getitng:

Thermaltake Tsunami

MSI Turbostream 600w

Also, you guys have any suggestions on another PSU? or this one is good. Im trying to stay under 200 for case + psu.

And these are the other componets

AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ Windsor 2000MHz SocketAM2

ASUS M2N-E Socket AM2 NVIDIA nForce 570 Ultra

eVGA Geforce 7900GT KO 256MB(RELOAD)
Video Card:

CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 800 (PC2 6400)

Seagate Barracuda 250GB 7200 RPM
Hard Drive:

Im pretty sure the PSU should be good enough, but I just want to make sure. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

XCLIO X14S4P3 500W ATX 500W ($95)
triple dual rail with good amps
Active PFC

ENERMAX Noisetaker II EG495P-VE ATX12V 485W ($90)
dual 12v rail with really strong amps (22), Active PFC

dual 12v rails
good amps
Active PFC

COOLMAX CP-500T EPS12V 500W ($50)
dual 12v rails
good amps
Active PFC
excellent specs for the price

That PSU you chose uses Passive PFC, which is ok but, not as good as Active PFC.

i wouldnt recommend the Cool Max PSU. Dunno how good it is, specs can say 1 thing but Coolmax doesnt make the top quality PSU's/

Didnt kno MSI went into the PSU buisness. I'd get an Antec Truepower 550w. around 80 dollars.
