We would need to know what motherboard and processor you have in order to tell you whether a certain psu is compatible, but as far as a site that you can go to, I'm not aware of one.

There are specs for ATX. I think they're named ATX 1.0, 2.0, 2.1, etc. or something close to that. A better way these days might be to look closely at the details for the motherboard, video card, and psu, particularly as regards the secondary connectors, 4-pin, 8-pin, etc. All of the current ones would be 24-pin on the primary connector.
Please don't double-post.

Mobo in use by would be the ASUS A8M2N-LA.
Appears to be a standard ATX form factor PSU.

That brand is more or less a generic.
Safer sticking with name brands.
eg. Enermax, Fortron, PC Power & Cooling, Sparkle...
