Smile Regarding PSU

dear all
i am going to assemble a system with the following specifications

intel i3-2100 3.1 GHz processor
intel DH67GD motherboard

my existing case does not contain an window for an exhaust fan at the top and i do not want to change it.

the high capacity PSUs (e.g. cooler master, antec, corsair etc.) are equipped with an exhaust fan at the top instead of backside of the case.

i found this PSU now available in Flipkart in India which contains the fan at the backside

Flipkart: Antec BP 350 350 Watts PSU: Psu

is this PSU suitable for my system with the mentioned specifications?

please suggest me.

thanks in advance

Newegg.com - Recommended Power Supply Calculator.

This should help you find the right PSU for your machine.

FYI, the fan at the back of the PSU exhausts hot air from the PSU itself, not the case.

... and in most cases, that fan doesn't actually face "up" - the correct orientation of 99% of the power supplies out there is to have the fan on the underside, so that it can effectively suck the air into the PSU and blow it out the back, as lhuser pointed out.
