ATX power supplies will normally have a 20+4 pin connector allowing either a 20 or 24 pin connector.
I wouldn't recommend getting a cheap power supply or using the one that comes with a case.
Best makes of power supply are Enermax, Forton, Antec etc.

When it doesn't work.
You can sometimes smell it though.

Anyway, I generally don't trust a power supply that comes with a case.

The mushroom cloud......

You will FIRST notice the smell, then you might see smoke...

On my 900Mhz P3, it has a 200W or maybe less PSU, and I tryed to hook up an additional 2 SCSI drives in addition to the HDD, optical drive, floppy, and two 40mm case fans, and it started smoking.... I had a good laugh, and it still works to power up the few components in the box, but it still smells a little bit, but not as bad as it did initially.

The case is good, the power supply that comes with it is not.

Enjoy reading the New PSU Sticky.

Default Re: ne good cases?? ne good psu?

Yes, it will fit, but it is not a dependable PSU.

Go with this one (comparable price, better name, same wattage):
Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER eXtreme RP-500-PCAR ATX from factor 12V V2.01 500W Power Supply 110-115V/ 220V-230V Nemko, TUV, cUL, CE, BSMI, FCC, CCC - Retail

Check here for a case... it doesn't matter if it has a PSU because you're going to buy one anyway:
Newegg.com - Buy Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!

Ummm... that's only a 350 watt PSU.

The Apevia is made by Aspire, and their PSUs ain't so hot. Read Ste's guide:
