I think I need a new PSU for my new gaming computer...

Here is my new build...

CPU: i5-750.

Mobo: Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD4P

RAM: G.Skill Eco 4 GB (2x2 GB) DDR3 1333 mhz CAS Latency 7

GPU: ATI Radeon HD 5770

HDD: Samsung Spinpoint F3 500 GB

Optical: Sony Optiarc 24x SATA

Case: Antec 300 Illusion


I currently have a 700w Rocketfish PSU and I've seriously tried every crazy maneuver i could and it just will not fit in my case. I would really appreciate it if someone could suggest a PSU for me that will support everything above (and perhaps post a newegg.com link :)  )

I'm desparate at this point and willing to pay a decent price, (I'd prefer under $110 though, but if need be I will suck it up).

Thanks a lot!

I'd rather see you get a new psu than use a Rocketfish, but it's slightly shorter than the Antec TPN 750, no reason for it not to fit.

the Rocketfish is shorter than the Antec? I swear the rocketfish doesn't fit! Unless I'm doing something horribly wrong, there is a metal piece that sticks up from inside the case where the PSU should rest. Very frustrating! :p

The Antec CP-850 should be the only Antec one with a fit issue. I'd suggest an Antec 650 watter at most unless you are planning a 2nd GFX card.

For around $100 the best I know of would be the S12D 750 by Seasonic.
