Alright I have upgraded tons of stuff on my pc, i currently have 2 sata drives, 2 ide drives(a dvd rw drive and a cd rom drive), 4 sticks of ram, a pci express, onboard audio and lan, case fan and processor fan, a p4 cpu, new mobo other then stock oem mobo all running off a 250 watt psu. I have wanted to change my psu for a long time here is the problem. My mobo is a microatx, so i believe my psu is micro atx and i cannot find a microatx psu over 250 watts. However i recently looked at the side of my psu and saw the word atx instead of micro atx. So if someone could tell me if i can use an atx power supply that would be perfect. The computer is a compaq pressario SR1430NX

Thanxs for ur help

Open up your side cover and take some measurements on your power supply. Most compaq's built in the last couple of years use standard ATX power supplies.

I have found this power supply is slightly smaller than the normal ATX PS's. ou may need one a bit more powerful.


Heres more power.

According to Google, this model uses a standard power supply unit, therefore these are available from pretty much every PC outlet.
