easiest way is to take off the side of your case there should be a sticker stating everything there (well there has been on everyone I've seen.. they again, they have pretty much all been generic psu's).

Just another newbie at the moment.

Thumbs up

yeah, there is generally a sticker saying the wattage and all the voltages and amps. Also check on the new one that its the 20/24 connection to future proof it and i would get at least a 550w one
