Hey guys.

I was just wondering if this PSU:

Will work in my PC (HP m7658n), which is right here:

Because apparently I need a bigger psu to get a better video card. I'm just mainly concerned about the size of the psu. I just want to make sure it's gonna work and fit properly before I purchase it.


Thanks,

Grant

I can not tell if your HP psu is a standard ATX unit or not. Take some measurements of the back of the unit in your case. If they are standard size (3 1/2" high x 6" wide) then the psu should fit. The Antec unit is not unusually long.

As an alternative, FSP sells a graphics booster unit that fits in a external 5 1/2" bay:

That FSP psu is nice but i'm on a budget. The reason I wanted this antec basiq psu is because i can get it real cheap and I need more wattage. I know all those wires that come with it are gonna boggle my brain! I may need some help with that, lol.
