That is my PC full specs if you can find my motherboard in it PLEASE help me out here :) 

Basically im buying a psu here: http://www.amazon.co.uk/OCZ-OCZ600MXSP-UK-ModXStream-Po...

I talked to someone i know and he said that motherboard is really weird? It doesnt have the right pin connectora/sockets or something?

Can you guys please check out the motherboard and tell me if it is fine to keep with the PSU im buying or is it weird

(P.S if there are spelling errors its because i have a weird ass keyboard atm!)

Your board has an hp bios, so it doen't matter who makes it; the recommended cpus are listed, so ivy bridge probably won't work. I use ocz; you should have no problems installing it on your hp; the cables may have to be tucked in or tied down. With any oem system, a "k" unlocked cpu is a waste of money, so get a non K if you upgrade the cpu. I would download cpuz, a small file, to id your board, ram, and cpu.

If your system is the small form factor (narrow width and sits flat, not upright) then you may need a special power supply; if the case looks like this: http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/ca/en/sm/WF06b/12454-124... then any standard power supply such as the one you're looking at made by ocz will fit. The bios file is a small program that gives the motherboard settings for ram, cpu, etc. Hp makes their bios files simple; they have limits on what cpus and ram you can use, so go by their upgrade list if you ever change the processor. The standard processor on the regular size case is 2400 which is pretty fast, so changing it at some point may be a waste of money. I only mention this as upgrading hp computers is a frequent question.
