Case/PSU confusion

Hi there.

Recently bought this computer.
www.bestbuy.ca/en-CA/product/acer-acer-aspire-desktop-computer-featuring-amd-a6-3620-ax3470-eb10p-ax3470-eb10p/10190541.aspx?

Didn't really have too much knowledge of computers at the time. Couple months later, found out about upgrading, got interested.

Thought this PSU would fit in the case.

I, in ignorance, did not open up her computer to measure the physical size of the power supply for myself. The new PSU didn't fit.

Does anyone know of a case that would fit this PSU (designed for mini-ITX cases) and the motherboard (form factor is mATX) while supporting a full size GPU, preferably the Sapphire Radeon 6850 HD?

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

  1. That is why you make Steaks not computers. Stick to what you're good at and studied for. Everyone in the whole wide world think they can engineer a computer system that suits their needs. Thus hundreds of boards like this open up.
    mATX power supply is 400W only and specifically build for All-In-One motherboards, it is not enough to power a full ATX with components and extra drives. Trade it for a full size ATX, get at least a 600W PSU with enough amps to cover what you put inside the case. Warranty decides brand.
