Yeah it's going to work fine, any ATX Power Supply fits in an ATX case. And the Corsair TX750 V2 has all the connectors you may need to power your system including the 4 Pin CPU conector and the 24 Pin motherboard connector.

Just for curiosity, are you going to put a high end graphics card in this computer ? 750 watts it's a lot if you're using only the Integrated graphics processor.

It's very straight forward, unplug all the connectors of your motherboard carefully (The 24 Pin by the RAM and the 4 Pin near the CPU socket) and for the DVD writer/Hard Drives remove the SATA power connector or MOLEX.

Remove the screws from the Power Supply located at the back of your computer case and slide the Power Supply out. Then place the Corsair TX750 V2 and secure it with screws (They should be provided with the Power Supply).

Then proceed to connect everything correctly (The motherboard connectors, the Hard Drives, DVD Writers and then turn your PC on and check if everything works fine.

If you need more of a tutorial of how to install a PSU, check some videos in YouTube.

Thanks very much jrayx! i will get working on my psu right away, btw the link u sent me in the end it says dont forget to check is the psu 110v/220v switch is configured in the correct positiona according to the voltage used on your AC outlet. Do you have any idea where that is, or if i even need to use it?
