Help me pick a power supply...please?

I need to upgrade the power supply in my son’s computer. It needs to be 300W or more. I’m just confused about fit and what would be required for the case. Here is what we have: i3647-2308BK (Dell Inspiron desktop)

Thank you!!!

You may want to get further assistance with fit but I always recommend this PSU as a good, cheap and reliable option.

Thank you. Yes, it is the fit that worries/confuses me. I’ve never replaced a PSU, but it looks pretty simple aside from getting one that fits the case.

Worst case scenario, I'm sure you can return it. It is, just make all the connections, screw down the psu to the case and you're good to go.
