I have a new arrival:

Picked up this Aptiva 2196-20A for pocket change. It's a K6-2+ 550, and needs a HDD & optical drive. Also needs a low profile PCI video card. I'll be on the lookout for an FX5500 at a non-silly price.

On inspection of the PSU, at only 95W, I won't be rushing into a video card as planned. I'm now wondering if there are any PSU upgrade options. Does anyone know if this form factor has a name?

Dimensions are 200mm x 85mm x 45mm, which is thinner than TFX.

Maybe something along the lines of SFX? You could measure the dimensions of it and compare to specs for common SFX PSU's. There are also some other weird SFF form factors around as well to look into.

Main pc: AsRock x370 Killer SLI a/c, Ryzen 5 2600, 1tb WD black nvme ssd, 24g ddr4 2400 @2933mhz, rx 480 8gb reference card, 2tb Hitachi Deskstar.
Retro PC: Soyo P4S Dragon, 3gb ddr 266, 120gb Maxtor, Geforce Fx 5950 Ultra, SB Live! 5.1

Cheers for the responses. I actually found my answer a few minutes ago! (I have a couple of SFX units handy, and that's a no go).

The answer: Flex ATX. That's not technically what the stock unit is, but dimension wise, a Flex ATX will drop in here.
