An ATX 1.3 compatible PSU, assuming your motherboard is using the 20 pin connector, which I'd bet money it is. If it's a 24 pin connector, you need an ATX 2.0 compatible PSU.

Unless using a completely propiatary motherboard, voltages are all the same.

Something like this would be a good idea for your computer

Okay thankyou. I don't think the motherboard is proprietary. Is acer proprietary?
I just don't want to fry my BRAND new motherboard.
