PSU for a micro ATX setup

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My dads building a new a new PC.

Its going to go in an old small case that he likes the look of (e-machines :S, although it does look alright, I can see lots of problems getting the new mobo to fit.)

Anyhoo, he is going to get this mother board bundle: clicky

So its a micro ATX mobo. The PC will be only used for word processing, internet browsing, email, and general faffing around. Its not going to need to be a powerfull gaming machine, so onboard grpahics and sound is fine.

So, apart from the components in the bundle, the only addin cards will probably be a PCI tv card and a PCI wireless network card. It wont be heavily over clocked/ oc'ed at all. I think it'll also run 2 120mm fans. Maybe smaller.

So what power supply will be needed? I was thinking a 300w, but my dad wants to minimise power and use a 250w. Currently, the one hes looking at is this one:clicky

Sorry for the long-winded explanation, but just wanted to make sure you got the right idea

I'd get a different PSU. FSP makes a bunch of mATX units which are probably both cheaper and a bette buy than the Enermax ones.
