Default help finding out what power supply this is

hey guys i was thinking about upgrading my computer ( plan on buying 7900gtx and new motherboard ) but in order to do that i need a new power supply! lol so im curious as to what type of power supply i have right now at the moment. im using the power supply that came with my case. here is a picture of it.

is this a ATX psu? if i were to buy a new psu, it would be a plain ATX and not a ATX12V correct?

im planning on buying this.

and since im asking, im wondering if this motherboard would be good also.

thanks alot!

i think the sticker pretty much answers it,dont you agree?
anyway its cheap crap but thats what you usally get when it comes with the case

yeah ATX form factor , but technicaly its ATX12V like all modern psus , just make it clear ATX/ATX12V are not diffrent form factors just diffrent standards , ATX12V is a much newer standard and its use started years ago from pentium4/athlon xp and maybe pentium3 too , excellent choice on the psu , if you gotta have a mobo with SLI then better get one that supports the new SLI X16
and if your never gonna use SLI then save some $$$ and take one of these

talldude123 its not the watts that matters , its its price & amper rating
