PSU form factor question

Looking into upgrading my video card and with it my PSU soon and I have a micro ATX mobo. Wondering if a regular ATX PSU would be able to power the micro board so long as it I use a big enough case to fit the ATX PSU. The reason I ask is because MicroATX PSUs dont get much higher than 350 watts and that just isnt enough these days. Wouldnt really like to replace my board if i didnt have to. Thanks

Generally what Shamas said, but some of the higher power ATX poweer supplies are physically bigger. They mount in the same cut out, support any ATX MB but may interfere with HSF or airflow in a micro ATX case. Especially if you have a large after market HSF.

Look up the dimensions on the new PSU and see how tight a squeeze it will be in a micro case.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
