    im 99 percent shur becuase ATX is universal so even if the new one is just a little longer it should fit

    thesize micro atx your reffering to is either the case of the mobo. the size all psu's are the same[ or very, very close]. they are designed to be interchangable and work for most anything. the older psu s however do not have pentium 4 support [the 4 prong yellow & black wire connecror]. these psu s do not work with the new pentium 4's but if you have an amd or celleron d, etc. you do not need it. there is a few psu size conflicts that i don't think you need to worry about, in my case :) i can't get about 3 of the old big [450-600w] psu's in because of whatever reason the size somthing or other. but i have a costom case and i dought u have a propritary case. you should be good 2 go.. :firebounce
