It could be the power supply, but what I need you to do is be a bit more descriptive with the booting process taking place on the screen.
When you boot up the computer dos the POST screen appear at all?
If it does, what is taking place on the screen?
Does it produce a post beep code at all?
If so, what POST beep codes do you hear?
Do any POST errors show up on the POST screen?
Your computer may be a victim of a hardware connector oxidation build up problem.
An easy fix, is simply locating the hard drives power and data transfer cables, then disconnecting the plugs on either end of the cables from where where they are plugged in, then reconnecting them again to the same connector, making sure they are firmly and securely plugged in.
Reboot the computer and see if this fixes the problem.

My next idea is a new PSU. Do you have a recommendation?

Here is some information I pulled up on your default setup.
You have 4 USB 2.0 ports.
Your PSU is listed as being an Industry Standard 250 or 300 Watt.
It is either one of the two listed above, neither one is very powerful by todays standards.
Have you added any new internal hardware to this system besides what it originally came with?
Exactly how many devices do you normally have plugged into the USB ports?
I will start checking the web for recommendations on a PSU upgrade, but my next question is where exactly does your budget stand at this point?
I need a rough idea what your price range is before I can offer any suggestions to you.
