Hi guys, i need to buy a new case and psu for my pc. Intel lga775, asus p5ld2vm, 7800gt graphics card etc.

I dont necessarily need a new case but if its not too expensive to buy a new case with powersupply included then i may do so. I don't want to spend too much but dont want anything cheapy.

Has anyone got any reccomendments or suggestions? Thanks :whistling:

Do yourself a favor and buy a good power supply like a silverstone 500 watt for $100. Anything less and you are taking a chance that there will not be enough continuous power. Most PS's are rated at 70% so a 500 watt will only put out a steady 350 watts. That is not enough for a new computer with a high power video card and fast processor. At least the silverstone is rated at 85%( 425 watts). Heres a good website on PS's.

I really like this case so i have ordered one a couple of days ago.

What i think would be the best thing for you is Antec cases they come with good PSUs included alot of the time and have impecable build quality on the cases and PSUs and they are a good price, the sonata IIs are a good price right now and are good cases and the PSU will deliver enough power for most systems easily.

Best thing to do is shop around. & look at who has the better prices in your area. If you want a good case that will catch your eye, than take your time to find the right one. As for a psu... You can either buy it seperately and have a top notch one... Or buy one that comes with a case. It's all on you at the end of the day... & how much money you want to spend is on you as well...
