I have an HP Pavilion p6703w with need to upgrade power supply for graphics card. The power supply is an:
Internal 250W (100-240V)
Form factor: internal ATX
Dimensions: 150mm x 140mm x 86mm (5.9 x 5.5 x 3.4 inches)

It's mounted at the top back, with a fan facing out of the back of the case. Just needing suggestions for 500W+ psu... asking smarter folks than me. :)  Cheers

Thanks for the quick reply. Being somewhat of a noob with PSUs, how much of a situation is going to develop as the fans on those are located differently than mine? Mine looks like...

The PSUs that you linked would sit at the back top of my case with maybe half an inch of clearance between the fan on top of the PSU and the inside top of the case. Is that an issue? I'm just worried about air flow. Thanks.

You face the fan down inside the case and it will blow air out through the back of the PSU! The small fan in the back blows out as well so it basically is the same style airflow but more efficient and quiet with the big fan!
