My case has brackets that hold PSU in

Hi, today I finally opened up my computer and found that the PSU had some extra support in addition the the screws in the back. There are 2 bracket things that seem to be permanent on the case and one side has 2 half dome shaped things that I can press to release the PSU. I measured the PSU with a ruler and here are the dimensions: 5.6inches, 5.7 inches, and 3.5 inches. I am not sure which is the width, height or length. If someone could put a diagram I would be happy to tell you the lengths. Now the PSU I want to get is http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139020
and its dimensions are 5.9"(W) x 3.4"(H) x 6.3"(L). That is slightly bigger than my current PSU and my current PSU seems to fit tightly with the brackets on the case. Would there be a way to install a bigger PSU?

More about case brackets hold
  1. what is the orgional computer? Dell? HP?

    please post the model.
  2. As a rule of thumb, the length of any object is the longest measurement. Height would be considerably more obvious, just measure top to bottom. As far as fitting a new PSU in, you could either find a way to remove the unnecessary bracketry, or simply get a new case.
  3. I have a Dell Studio Xps 8000. I believe the dimensions are this: 5.7 inches (W), 5.6 inches(L), and 3.4 inches (H).
