So this is the thing, i have generic case, atx i think; it looks like this: http://assets.overclock.net.s3.amazonaws.com/a/ae/ae075... (is just a picture that i found on google, don't have a cam)
it's one of those that have the psu in the upper left corner if you view it from the side, so i was wondering if you can use a psu like this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... in a case like that one, for more reference i have a msi msi g41m-p26 micro atx board, thank you.

That's not the best pic, but it looks like you can use any ATX size PSU you want in that case (the one you linked included), but a Cooler Master PSU is not recommended. Look for Corsair, Antec, SeaSonic, Silverstone, PC Power & Cooling and XFX.

ATX PSU dimensions are 6 × 3.4 × 5.5
So if your chassis has an opening of 3.4 inches in height and 5.5 inches in width then it will support any ATX compliant power supply.

Thank you all for your recommendations, but the thing is i have a very small budget so i need something not very expensive i can't spend more than 50$ on a psu as i am aiming for an intel core e7500 and besides what worried me most was the psu form factors (yes i know, the core cpu and stuff)but i'm just happy with the lga 775 so now i'm going for the big leagues.) xD
