Hello!
I'm looking to buy a larger case for my computer (because the current one is tiny, will only fit LP cards) that wont break my bank. It should have a sufficient PSU for a 7850 (500W maybe?) and that it would fit my current motherboard on it (imedia S3840).
Thanks to all whom might answer!

I think your budget is too low to get something with acceptable performance. This is as low as Id go

here http://pcpartpicker.com/p/gW5C in US prices 120$
Seasonic is one of the most reliable PSU companies and this one is fully modular
also the case is quite decent for its price

How useful is a modular PSU? is it worth the extra price?

cable management is very easy in a modular PSU compared to a regular one, but that's about it
