PSU is always atx for generic computers. The casing can come in different form factors like atx and micro atx.

Branded computers can have their own proprietary psu or even obscure stuff like btx.

Ah then its a generic chinese psu. Will only do about 200 watts max under real world use.

You need not worry about your PSU unless you plan to add a graphics card. If that is what you intend to do then you will need a branded PSU like corsair, cooler master, fsp etc.

^no, the problem is that im going to upgrade my motherboard and new motherboard is ASUS P5QPL-AM which iz a micro atx......

well than, you need to confirm that ur PSU has 24-pin EATX power connector and 4-pin ATX 12V Power connector.... if so than u should be fine.

See If the power connectors of ur PSU matches the highlighted connectors of the mobo.
