The case I have comes with a 450 power supply but that won't be enough to power everything so i'm going to have to put a different one in but I don't know what type to put in there. I haven't gotten the case yet but based on the pictures it looks like a large power supply won't fit into the case and I don't know what type of form factor the case will accept.

Here is the case that i'll be using.

Tells you what Form Factor the case will accept. It is usually a good idea to look at the entire web page, especially the Details. Good info that you may need to know is located there.

Considering that it also states that it is an [quote]ATX 450W dual fan power supply w/ automatic fan speed control[\quote] power Supply you will need a bigger ATX power supply.
Here is one made by Aspire so I am sure it will fit and it is 550 Watts.
