    What is your budget and how much power was your old one rated for?

    450w (PSU)

    i can up my budget if required... i want to make sure it can protect my computer from lightning damage..

    following features will be useful:

    Surge protection, short circuit protection, over voltage etc

    Here is a good power supply: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371035

    Two rules to keep in mind when choosing a power supply:

    1. Never go cheap. A psu is the backbone of any system.

    2. A system will pull only the power it needs so the 500 watt psu I linked you to won't over voltage your PC.

    * As for surge protection get yourself a good surge protector.

    Check this link out for examples: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...0&Order=BESTMATCH&Description=surge+protector I use both Cyberpower and Belkin and like them both. Keep in mind the higher the joules the more the cost but also the greater the protection.
