Need help buying new PSU

November 15, 2010 at 22:49:21
Specs: Windows XP sp3
seems that my old 400W has gone bad and I need a new one but I know nothing of them so are they all the same with just different power or do they have different plugs and stuff.

I've found a 500W PSU, will that be ok for my computer?
