    Hello, I have recently bought a new Packard Bell iMedia S1300 and because I like to play games alot the specs for this computer arent good enough for the gaming that I play such as WoW and Starcraft 2. I went to the store to see what I need to upgrade my system and the technician told me I need a slimline PSU :S now I am unsure if he means a Micro ATX PSU or just a standalone version of a PSU which is slimline. I am also struggling where to find slimline PSU's so I am guessing Micro ATX is what he meant.

    Just to be on the safe side to make sure im not buying anything I don't need or doesn't fit I would like to know some information on whether the imedia S1300 requires a Micro ATX PSU :)

    The best advise I could give you is that if you want to run games, then you need a real desktop that is capable of running games ie either build one yourself, have a shop build one for you, or buy a gaming system like an alienware/dell.

    You are going to run into more problems trying to upgrade a PB computer; cooling for one.
