Hey guys. So I need some help picking a power supply for the bitfenix prodigy mini-itx case. The max length of the psu it can fit is 160mm so I was hoping someone could recommend a good psu for the case. I dont believe I need more than 700w and don't really know what the 80+ metal certified tags mean so if someone could clear that up to it would be much appreciated.

Trying to to keep the psu at around $100. Thanks in advance for the help.

This one should fit well. 80Plus is an norm of efficency. For exemple, the PSU I mentionned has Gold certification. This means it efficiency is between 87 and 90%. If your computer is consuming 400W the real consumption in your electric bill will be around 440W.

This certification generally means better quality because low quality part don't get very good numbers in efficiency.
