I recently upgraded my Nvidia gtx 750 to a Msi gtx 970 gaming. The problem with this is that my PSU does not support the new GPU. I've been looking around but i couldn't find anything with correct dimensions. I need at least 500w from the psu but dimensions to fit an Asus M51AD. Most of the power systems are too wide. I need to know what will fit and still power my gpu. 

All of my specs:

CPU: Intel I7-4790s

Memory: DDR3 12GB

New GPU: Msi gtx 970 4gb gaming

Mother Board: Asus M51AD

I'm not entirely sure if the motherboard model is the same as the case model but if you search it, it comes up with the right case.


I'd really appreciate if someone could help me find a good PSU.

I'm not sure exactly what you are referring to by "correct dimensions".  Almost all cases use a ATX PSU.  There are some older Dell computers which used proprietary PSUs that didn't have the ATX dimensions.  ATX is a industry standard, this means it will have dimensions which match the ATX standards.


What case are you using?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
