Tonight I just found out that my power supply can not fit in my case because it was an inch too big:

My old psu: 300w psu, Dimensions: US 5.5" x 5.9" x 3.4"

My new psu: 600w psu, Dimensions: 7 x 6 x 3 inches

My new video card is: ati radeon hd 4850 512mb 256-bit

Can someone suggest me a new psu that would fit my case like the old psu that can handle my new gpu? My budget is around $50, I wouldn't mind taking suggestions on psu that cost more.

This would be my choice 1st choice

Second choice
Antec EarthWatts Green EA-430D Green 430W

Corsair 400 watt

All these will run your system fine. AMD recommended 450 watt PSU but thats because there are so many cheap PSU out there the Corsair 400 watt I listed has 30 amps on the 12 volt rail some of those cheapos barely put 25 Amps on the 12 volt.

As much as I hate rebates the first psu has really good reviews and good price, the only thing is that it doesn't show me the dimension for CORSAIR CMPSU-450VX 450W ATX12V V2.2 80 PLUS
