Need a new power supply what are the options?

any atx power supply will work. Look on the old power supply to get the wattage rating and get one comparable. If it's 250 watt you can get a 250 or 300 watt, if it's 400 watt you can get a 400 or 500 watt so forth and so on, but I wouldn't get on of less wattage than the original. Go to they have lots of choices and at good prices. Hope this helps.
