This is the one I have right now

It recently started to making grinding noises. Searched online a bit and decided to buy a new PSU I was wondering if this is a good PSU that would fit into my HP Pavilion Media Center m8200n. I'm new to this so i was wondering does it matter where the PSU Fan is positioned? Also i can't find the dimensions on these PSU i was hoping you can help me find them.

The one I'm most edging on

For that price, you definitely should give the HP PSU a miss.. Your selected PSU (Corsair CX 400) is awesome so stick with it.. A quick google search on the m8200n lists the case to be a mid size ATX and thus, most of the PSU's (which definitely includes your selected one) will fit fine.. Nothing to worry about on that aspect..

Thank you for the help um i was wondering does it matter like w here the fan is? like you know the corsair fan will be downwards and my hp psu fan is pointing north.

Edit: I have a 9400GT graphics card too and i don't think my other psu wasn't enough. I'm sure Corsair 400 will be enough I heard it is a good company.

Thank you again for the help.
