I would buy a seperate power supply from a good company (enermax, antec etc). From my experience PSUs that come with cases are not all that great.

Quite right.. Power Supplies that come with cases don't last very long.. I have had four bought for customers and they all had to replace the power supply..

A very good power supply is a Rosewill.. RV350 350 w ATX ..

We have had really good luck with these.. I think we got them at Newegg..

Indeed, the power supply is often overlooked as being a very important component. I have a nice Raidmax case that came with a power supply, but the power supply was junk (Raidmax power supply). I was getting random reboots of my system, turned out the cause was the Raidmax power supply. I replace it with a quality power supply, no random reboots since. Here is a link to the best collection of information on power supplies that I have found: http://www.hardforum...isplay.php?f=93
Check out the sticky posts at the top of the forum. They have information on which power supplies are good, and which ones to aviod (and Raidmax is one of them!).

ECS boards are about as low as you can get on the motherboard quality scale, right next to Biostar, PC Chips, and several no name brands. Go with something by Abit, MSI, DFI (agp boards not so good, pci-e boards great), Asus, etc. Something well known for quality.
