I got given an old Shuttle XPC that I am wanting to use as a Plex server, but it is missing a few parts. The most problematic of these is the power supply, as it uses a strange, possibly proprietary case it won't fit an ATX PSU. 

 

The model number is the Shuttle SG31G2

 

Any help in sourcing a reasonably priced PSU would be much appreciated.

I believe they are just standard Flex ATX PSU's

I ended up buying this one, which hopefully will fit:

So, turns out the PSU I bought doesn't fit. I don't really want to spend $89 on an old Shuttle PC though so I might give up if i can't find a cheap one somewhere.

What sort of content are you hoping to stream from the Plex server?  An older PC might not handle some decoding.

Worth a shot, how much do you want for it?

Most of the content won't require transcoding and generally the highest resolution is 720p
