An ATX case is an ATX case, Power Supplies on the other hand vary .. most are compatible with Athlons or P4s check the specs to make sure before you plug it up.

Not really... there are quality ATX cases and there is plenty of junk out there, and some of it has recognized brand names on it. Larry

Yoou can surely assume that the PSU is capable to handle your components.
An 400 Watt supply is a rather big one!
The ATX-connector is the problem:
The main connector will allways fit, but in addition there can be a small square (4Pins) connector and/or an "P9" conector be needed.
See if your supply comes with these extra connectors.
If the mainboard does not have these and your supply do, the supply will work also perfectly without these conectoers attached.
These are for extra power to some parts of special mainboards.
