I just got this desktop http://www.bestbuy.com/site/asus-essentio-desktop-16gb-memory-2tb-hard-drive/8959195.p?id=1218956960362&skuId=8959195

I want to know if this Power supply will fit in the case http://www.bestbuy.com/site/dynex-153-520w-atx-cpu-power-supply/2658156.p?id=1218342638023&skuId=2658156

Maybe they don't list PSU size specification anywhere but I still wouldn't buy that PSU Dynex isn't exactly known for their high quality units.

Probably could have saved at least $200 building a similar machine yourself FYI. Also, DO NOT buy a cheap/offbrand PSU as it will not provide reliable power and could very well take your whole system with it when it goes. I highly recommend a PSU from Antec, PC Power and Cooling or Corsair. There are other reputable brands I'm sure others can recommend as well.

What about the Thermaltake? http://www.bestbuy.com/site/thermaltake-tr2-600nl2nc-atx12v-eps12v-power-supply/5381884.p?id=1218635882854&skuId=5381884

I know 600Watts is probably overkill, but I'm going based on whats available in my area, and I'm not waiting on shipment as I want to put my GTX 660 in asap lol

This is your only reasonable choice from the list that is actually sold at Best Buy stores. Not the best price but it's a damn fine power supply.

If you have the PC on hand take out the PSU and physically measure the dimensions of the PSU sometimes they use the slimline models and s*** like that but that thermaltake you're hit or miss on the TR2 versions the early versions were lousy performance wise but the later versions were fine, not really sure which one that is.

And I'll vouch for that, very good unit for the price. Even shub will recommend it so you know it's good.

When did the WEI start being out of 10? I thought it was always out of 7.9
