Virtually all PC PSUs are ATX. You will have to try very very hard to find a PC PSU that is not ATX.

However, you should not go with no-name PSUs.
Once again...

The ATX power supply that you're going to "get" or "connect" depends on what model and brand of motherboard, graphics card, cpu, hardrives and other peripherals you're going to connect to it.

Edit - Sorry, that may have seemed harsh.

ATX can mean either a physical form factor or an electrical standard.

ATX the form factor is the industry standard for PSUs. SFX, TFX, and a few other miniature form factors exist for extremely small cases.

ATX the electrical standard has been obsolete for over ten years and is intended for systems built between 1995 and 2001. It has been succeeded by ATX12V and EPS12V.


ATX 1.x : 1995-2001 : Pentium 2, Pentium 3, Athlon XP

ATX12V 1.x : 2001-2005 : Pentium 4, Pentium D, Athlon64, Athlon 64x2

ATX12V 2.x : 2006 - present : Core 2 and up, Athlon x2 and up

ATX12V 2.x/EPS12V 2.91 : 2007 - present : High-end modern systems


The different electrical specifications have a lot in common and may be somewhat inter-compatible, but for best results it's suggested to use the appropriate standard or you may experience instability or system failure.
