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

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

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.

CORSAIR CMPSU-450VX 450W ATX12V V2.2 80 PLUS

This would be my choice 1st choice

Second choice
Antec EarthWatts Green EA-430D Green 430W
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Third
Corsair 400 watt
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

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
