    I don't know. Doesn't mention anything about the power supply other then its a 500 watt, no brand. Little cheap as well with all the stuff. Doesn't look very nice either. Skimpying on the power supply can lead to problems latter on.

    What exactly are you looking for in the case? Design, window, fancy design, with or without a powersupply?

    Hello, IMHO never buy a case with a power supply. As Triple6 said you can run into some pretty messy problems down the road :eek: Buy a case for it's cooling capability. I would recommend a Thermaltake case like the one here http://www.dealtime.com/xPO-Thermaltake_CASE_TT_VA4000BWS_RT_SVIKING ;)

    this is the stuff I'm getting for my daughter, a very well designed case, tool-less drive bays, insulated 3.5 hdd connections for quiet operation with removable cage, metal rail 5.25 drive bay connectors, large 120mm rear fan, cpu air duct that you use with or without 80mm fan, space in front for another fan if needed, removable side door, clean and sturdy, with a nice Coolmax psu, you can get fancier looking with lights and dodads but this one is nice and clean, easy to work on or modding. In this case i like the door because her drives are biege so your wont see them. The only thing that would have been nice is a side window.
