    Hi. Currently I have a Bestec ATX 250-12e power supply. I need to upgrade my power supply to 350 watts or above to support my new video card. The problem is I am not sure if this is a ATX or a ATX12v power supply. Can someone help? I have been to different websites and some say it is ATX and some say it is ATX12v.

    Simple solution, open the case and see if there is a yellow and black wire with four sockets on the end of it, going to your motherboard. If there is, it's a ATX 12v.

    And a better power supply would be another suggestion from me. Antec, Enermax, Enlight, Fortron (FSP), Sparkle or Thermaltake are the best and work better than Bestec, a low end power supply. Power supply's are a big part of your computer and you would not be wanting one that may kill your computer or not provide the correct voltages.
