    PSU backward compatibility

    I've a ms6156 motherboard here, microstar from around the BX chipset era, with a PII 450mhz in it. I need a psu&case for it.

    I was just wondering if someone could confirm if the modern "for AMD/P4" psus will be ok for it?

    Trying to cobble together a dirt cheap pc from bits lying around but dont have a spare psu or case.

    thanks

    Should be. They all work on the standard ATX form factor I believe....

    that MSI uses a bog standard ATX power supply. Any old ATX on the market'll work fine.
