PC part picker has all these different types of PSU's and just wondering what you guys prefer, obviously the size of the PSU insie the case is a factor but overall what do you prefer if you are not contrained for space.

This is an odd question, really.

ATX/ATX12V/EPS12V all would apply here. All newer PSU's that you would use in a normal, full size system are ATX, but they will also be either ATX12V or EPS12V (or both at the same time). I don't even know of any newer ATX PSU's that aren't at least ATX12V.

Strange question with no real answer, other than to just get an ATX PSU if you're building a system for a normal sized case.

I think you're letting PC Part Picker confuse you. Don't.

All you need to know is that you want an ATX PSU.

Yeah hit the nail on the head, it really doesn't make all that much sense to me that they did it this way. I have my A+ and they didnt even bother to teach this, why in the world does anyone else know this I don't know.

Yeah, I get having other form factors other than ATX there, but they really should combine all of the ATX PSU's into one category (or just two, being ATX12V and EPS12V).
