More aboutneed finding size case
Any ATX PSU will fit a std ATX, mid ATX case. But your case's dimensions seem to indicate that it might possibly be a mid ATX. If so, the full sized ATX board may not fit. Please tell us the make/model of your case. The board and PSU too.
do you plan on adding a graphics card and what is your budget?
for budget PSU check out the antec neo eco and corsair CX series. they are priced well, offer plenty of real world power starting at around 400w. both brands also offer different series of PSU at different price points and power to fit various needs.
Case is mATX Board is ATX Won't work
Do y'all know of any motherboard that will work with the AMD Phenom II X4 965 that is mATX?
@dirtyferret i already have graphics card
So do i need to find a PSU and motherboard that say mATX? i thought ATX was able to fit into a mATX xd
what is the graphics card? different cards use varying amount of power that your PSU needs to meet.
also, the HP may have proprietary audio, power, HDD light, and reset connections. you should check them out
