i measured the inside of the case and from the bottom of the PSU mounting plate to the top inside of the case its 4 inches the 250watt psu that game with the case is exactly 4 inches high by 6 inches wide i tested the psu to see if it would fit my friends HP micro atx tower and it fits so i deff need a micro atx psu

Your case has 7 PCI slots which means it is ATX (NOT micro ATX which has 4 PCI slots).
Any ATX power supply should fit.

For the absolute cheapest decent power supply I'd say get the Antec EA-380D. But it doesn't have much headroom over your max power draw and is also group-regulated which is likely to limit your overclocking potential.

For a little more get the Seasonic S12II 520. Still group-regulated but higher power.

yes the case has 7 pci slots but it only has room for a micro atx power supply if u look at the pic i posted you will see that this is a rack mount server case you will also see that a standard atx psu wont fit
