How can I tell if a PSU is compatible with my MoBo

How can I tell if a PSU is compatible with my MoBo. It never crossed my mind for a millisecond that it wouldn't be. Until I saw one that I liked the look of and the requirements caught my eye.

Compatibility and System Requirements:

Chassis ATX case Motherboard All ATX-compatible motherboards, including Mini ITX, Micro ATX, ATX, and E-ATX

The only thing I thought I'd need to know was the measurements, so I could be sure it would for inside my case.

I think I've solved the question myself. It's always good when you can do that. It's just a pity I didn't think about looking in my MoBo book before posting this thread. I'm sure you'll all be wanting to know the answer?

A - Yes it is compatible with my MoBo, when I looked at the 24 pin plug it said 'EATXPWR' well it hasn't actually got the hyphen between the 'E & A' but it's good enough for me and if the screw holes aren't in the correct places, I'll just bung it in the bottom of the case, I've got plenty of room.

The screw holes are always compatible as it is a standard dimension.
