Hello cire1987, It seems your system is a Micro-ATX: 24.4 cm (9.6 inches) x 24.4 cm (9.6 inches).

 

Here  is a link to the specifications for your system.

You should open up your PC and measure the physical dimensions of your power supply.  Here is a list of things to consider:

  1. Specifications
  2. Total wattage - important
  3. 12+ volt amperage rating - important
  4. Modular - not mandatory but I like the flexibility
  5. Warranty
  6. i7 and SLI ready
  7. Efficiency rating
  8. Cost
  9. Physical size -- standard ATX PSU is 5.5" by 5.9" by 3.4" give or take a few tenths

www.newegg.com has lots of PSUs choices.  Corsair, OCZ, Rosewill, Thermaltake.....

Hello cire1987, The link you list has some more information on this board. It suggest at least a 450 watt power supply. I would suggest a 550 watt power supply just to be on the safe side. The AMD processor has a power rating of 125 watts just by itself, so when you add all the other components, you could easily go into the high 300 plus watt area or above.

Your PC has a standard size ATX power supply.
