    :(I have an Asus Pundit P1-PH1 and want to upgrade the power supply. The current PS is 250w and would like to upgrade to a 300-350w. It's a P4, 24-pin mainboard, need molex, and SATA. I'm having some problems finding ones that will fit. The dimensions are 4.75"L x 4.75"W x 3"D (121mm x 121mm x 76mm). I can't go any bigger dimension wise for space reasons. Thanks in advance.

    They come in standard sizes. If yours is an oddball, you may have to get one from the manufacturer, or rig it somehow to hold a different size. I wouldn't just go up 100 watts, though. If you are going to upgrade, and especially if you buy one that could be used later on a different machine, I wouldn't go lower than 500 watts.

    I have it lying around and going to use it for a media center. I'm upgrading the processor to P4 3.8ghz and twinx ram. I just don't feel 250w cuts it for anything useful, but I also know that I will never put anything in its current case to necessitate 500w.
