Will this psu fit this case

Just a quick question, rebuilding my old hp pavilion p7-1054 (getting a case and adding a graphics card and a power supply), will this psu fit this case -

Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811322016

Oh, and also if you have any suggestion for around the same price on new egg that would be appreciated. Thanks :) (My graphics card requires minimum 500 watts that's why I was looking for a 600)

  1. Get this PSU instead - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139027&Tpk=CX500

    Same price for much higher quality :)

    Also, generally speaking, as long as you select a standard ATX case and a standard ATX PSU, you will have no problems with compatibility.

    The graphics card says minimum 500 watts, so I was thinking I'd probably need 600 :l

    What GPU are you looking at? And generally speaking, the recommended wattage for GPU's are HIGHLY over-rated. Also, your system specs would also be very nice so I can get a general idea of how much power you'll actually use.

    They only say that because many people will attempt to install GPUs on bad quality power supplies, with these they will actually output as much as advertised.

    You shouldn't reach even close to 500w in actual usage with single cards.

    I'm looking at a 7870 OC... Looked at some psu calculators... says im'a need about a 480 watts so I think what you'll linked me will be adequate. Thanks for the help.

    Oh yes, definitely. The Radeon HD7870 is a very power efficient card to begin with! The card itself won't use more than around ~140w if I recall correctly :)
