I've HP Pavilion Elite m9362.nl desktop pc (http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docna
I want to buy a new Power Supply Unit, current one is 460W, I'm about to buy Cooler Master PSU Real Power 850W (http://www.coolermaster.com/products/product.php?
My question: Is it works good on my pc without any problem? because one of HP agent said that my motherboard can handle only 550W.. I've searched it on internet and had same answers;
"This has got to be the most stupid answer ever from a helpdesk, way to go HP.
Like everyone else said, you can use a bigger psu, just be sure it has sufficient amps on the 12V rail(s)."
"More than likely, they are told to only state their units support PSUs or add ons that they sell."
"That does say something about the helpdesk of HP....they are clueless"
So everyone says that HP Agent told me wrong info.. which one is correct? May I buy this new 850W PSU for my PC?

YourPC has aM2N68-LA (Narra3)motherboard. The diagram and picture of the motherboard shows an ATX connector, so the answer is yes it will work.
The original PSU is ATX specification which denotes a physical size specification as well.
Your motherboard and peripheral devices will only draw what they require from the PSU. It will not hur your motherboard.
PSUs are not tatooed like HDDs so your system will boot up unless you damage something when you install the new PSU
