mpilchfamily you are so helpful you have answered 75% of my posts
ok this is what i heard from the guy at Fry's and im paraphrasing:
companies that manufacture prebuilt systems like HP purposely manufacture their cases to be smaller so that you have to buy certain components that will only fit in your case. end qutoe
Such as with my PSU (i had to take a thermaltake purepower 430W w/ active PFC(!) back before because it would not physically fit in my case without takeing out my two optical drives. then I bought the coolmax and now im finding out my videocard might need some more juice.
so... i would like to avoid a hassle due to a power supply not fitting by knowing whether it will fit in my case beforehand
Ill measure my power supply bay tomorrow and post back the specs if that might help
FSP looks good to me but again i have to know if it will fit
