(Help) Can someone identify what kind of computer case is this, and what kind of power supply its called?

This is a low-profile computer with a low-profile power supply, seems to be a pre-built system. The components in this system may be proprietary which limits your ability to upgrade/change components, and expansion cards would need to be half-height/low-profile.

Hope this information post was helpful  ?,

If this is a standard case with use of standard power connector (unlikely especially on older low-profile systems), then you I think that you would be able to use any SFX form-factor power supply, although I am not 100% sure. I know that a regular ATX power supply won't fit in a low-profile computer such as this one. Do you see any branding on the case besides the ASUS logo on the optical drive, or have a model for the computer/case?

This case is a SFF (small-form-factor) case, not an USFF (ultra-small-form-factor) case, not a tower case, not a micro case. Never seen or heard of a "slimline case", not an expert on cases, did some research and found that they are usually bought by businesses as workstation computers and are thinner than most desktops (https://www.computerhope.com/jargon/s/slimline.htm). If you are looking to upgrade this computer, I would recommend moving the components to an standard ATX case.

Hello and welcome.

 

If you're keeping the case then you might be able to make a SFX PSU work.  You may have to measure the dimensions of the current PSU to figure out what new PSU may fit.

sadly no, i do not see any branding of this case. i think it is just generic case.
