Any ATX power supply will work. Being that it is a mid tower you shouldn't have issues with lead length, which happens with some bottom mount PSU cases.

Have you already bought that case? If not I recommend going with a top mount PSU instead.

✔ Best Answer
It doesn't matter which OS you're running, what matters is the hardware you have installed, especially the CPU & graphics card because they are the big power users. The Antec Three Hundred Two accepts standard ATX PSUs but you'll have to detremine the wattage & amperage requirements based on your hardware.

I'm sure if you would have asked in advance, you would have been told to avoid a case that has the PSU mounted at the bottom. There are numerous reasons - poor cooling charateristics, the possibility of the cables not being able to reach where they're needed, & the PSU cooling fan acting as a "vacuum" & sucking in any dust, crumbs, hair, or anything else that comes near the fan intake.
