    The price range you give doesn't give you much to work with. A decent P/S will consume the whole $50 and possibly more. You also don't specify what attributes the case should have, though at that price you're pretty limited. Also, how much power do you think you need?

    Why are you replacing the case? Why not just upgrade the P/S?

    Yeah I'm afraid there is no such thing even at $50.
    We suggest you never buy a case with a psu in it to begin with so you are starting right out in the wrong direction anyway.

    How about the attributes you are looking for in the case? What is prompting you to replace the one you have?

    I have to say that unless its a Thermaltake or Antec you should probably buy a case w/o psu. For an xmas build I did I bought a $29 Ultra-Wizard m-tower case, that coupled with a 350watt Antec I had made for a pretty decent case for an Athlon XP machine. It was for a teenager so it had the clear window, with glow stick lights etc.

    sadly they dont seem to be $29 anymore

    Hmm, I just tried the links and it loaded with no problem.

    Anyway it's an Antec TX1050B with 500 watt Smart Power PSU (modular cables) for $79.56. I just used one in my last build and it is a great case. It's big so if someone wants a small case this IS NOT the case for them.
