Hi I am just about to buy a case from Newegg right now. I just have a quick question.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16811103011

What type of power supply does this support. I know it does take ATX. But does it support ATX12V?
There are a lot more choices under that category. Yes I'm a noooob! Sorry I didn't realize I should of made a more detailed topic.

Yes.

Don't go cheap on your PSU, you get what you pay for. I like Thermaltake
and Antec. I don't know what all you are putting in the case, but I would recommend a 450 - 500 watt PSU, at least. Hope this helps.:thumbsup:

Thanks Wildabeast,

Here is what I am putting it my computer:
ASUS M2N32-SLI Deluxe Wireless Edition Socket AM2 NVIDIA nForce 590 SLI MCP ATX AMD Motherboard
Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD4000AAKS 400GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive
CORSAIR XMS2 4GB(2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory

I already have everything else. So you think a 450-500 watt PSU?

Go to tigerdirect.com and about 2/3 of the way down is a link The truth about power supplies. Click on that and it has a general list of how much power each part of your computer should use. It will give an idea of big of a PSU to get. Try to get one bigger than you need, for upgrading. :thumbsup:

Wildabeast:
That chart was really helpful, lol.

JeFFF:
Like most of them said, don't go cheap on a power supply. Spend no less than $40.
