    First, try this link.
    Then, try this link.

    Lastly, there's even a wiki on this site about it. Here's the link.

    Im debating between the M2 or M3, which one would better serve my needs? I have done research but im still unclear which one would be betta.

    Thread moved. This is not really a technical PSU thread. This is more a newbie question. In the future please pick more appropriate threads for your questions.

    Perhaps do more research and ask more specific questions. It's hard to say if one would work over the other since nobody knows what you're doing.

    HMMMM, I havent been giving advice like I should. The M2-ATX does look like it will do the job. You also have to base your power consumption on the USB devices you connect or plan on connecting. The Asus model you have is a ATOM based processor, so it uses very little power.

    If you are worried you will need more power, for future updating, then skip the M3 all together. I have heard such bad stories about the M3-ATX. Go with the m4-ATX if you need more power. Me pesonally, I prefer OPUS products, but only problem is their PSUs are large. Mine is almost half the size of the MoBo for my main system, which is big. They are so big I had to use three M4-ATX instead to save space for my rear setup, because 3 OPUS units would have taken all my space.

    I ordered the M3 because I couldn't find a definite answer but then you posted. I was looking into the opus ps but they are quite expensive. Is there one that would suit my needs for less than $100? The ones I have found are over $150+.

    Edit: I think I screwed myself because the m3 doesnt have the 4pin connector for the motherboard.

    nope, you can still use the m3, you will just need a adapter cable--http://store.mp3car.com/4_Pin_P4_Molex_Power_Cable_p/cbl-056.htm
