Cheap cases come with cheap PSUs. These should be avoided at all costs, as I found out.

Enermax and Antec make some pretty good cases and their older models can be found online with 350-watt PSUs for under $60 USD, only thing is...the only site I know off that stocks them that cheap is Zip Zoom Fly. I don't understand why you won't buy from them...you can even pay be check.

I can understand why Bob Jones dosn't want to buy on-line.

I try to avoid buying on line if I can. Maybe the postal service in the US is better than ours, but in the UK it's bad. This dosn't only apply to computer equipment but anything.

The last two bits of kit I've brought on line have taken ages to get here, the first actualy got lost in the post and had to be resent. But I live in central London so it's easy for me to go to Totenham Cort Road on a Saturday, shop around for a good price and actualy see and play with what I'm going to buy before parting with the cash.

But like I said, the postal service in the US may be a lot better than the sh*t we have to put up with here.

Thats what I thought, I got a cheap generic PSU that came with a cheap case, and it lasted two weeks!! Luckly it didn't damage anything else when it blew, but it could have done!!

It was a pain in the ass becasue I was skint when it gave up and I had to wait two weeks til payday to get my system running again.

If you live in or near the Dallas/Fort Worth Area and keep checking with Electronic Frye's,you can find some good deals on cases.I saw a case selling for 30 Dollars that came with a 300 Watt power supply and they always have good deals on other stuff.My Chief Engineer at my work bought an ATI Radeon 9600 Pro OEM for 60 Dollars and he says it works great and has no problems with it.Just check the packaging before buying,if it has a White sticker on it saying it's been returned, DONT buy it,I bought a Video Card like that and it didn't work and I wasn't able to take it back.

Look on pricewatch.com because I just picked up a aluminum case with 400w PS and side window with window fan and over the cpu extraction fan and case fan for front $39 ....So look around trust me there are deals.
