Replacing broke power supply

Hello, I am looking to replace a broken power supply off my old desktop. The broken PSU is a HIPRO ATX12V 250W 20pin. My question is how to pick a replacement for it, and what should I look for? I do plan on adding more memory for it so not sure if that plays a part in getting a larger wattage power supply

  1. try to measure the size of it please.
  2. Depends on your budget and system requirements. If you're using onboard video, you might get away with a low end unit at around 400 watts. Here's a good value and quality unit from newegg: http://www.corsair.com/builder-series-cx430-v2-80plus-certified-power-supply.html ($25 after rebate at newegg). You can use almost any standard atx ps; only a few are specialized for smaller cases. The corsair is a good brand. Others are antec, seasonic, ocz, enermax, and xfx. Your vender should have one of these brands.
