That's the good one, the price is ok but no power supply. Any case with power supply included?

What wattage are you looking for? 300, 400, 500w?
September 14, 2006 12:55:44 PM

550 or 600.
September 14, 2006 1:00:55 PM

OOOOH... whats your price range then? Don't expect anything under $100 for that much power.
September 14, 2006 1:05:17 PM

after some research I know I have to spend more for power sli ready and case. But I am looking for best price. I think I would find the power supply first then go for suitable case.

I found this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E1681...

I wonder any others is better out there for quality and good price?

No problem, thats what Firefox is for (I freakin love tabbed browsing)
Most of them look pretty good. Its always a good idea to go with the products that get a rating of 4 or more eggs. of those I recommend Antec. The mod lab at the community college I go to uses Antec extensively and the gurus there tend to like them.
Hope it was helpful.

anyway what is PFC? should i go for active pfc?
September 14, 2006 1:57:04 PM

PFC or Power Factor Correction allows power distribution to work at its maximum.
Active PFC:
Quote:
The preferable type of PFC is Active Power Factor Correction (Active PFC) since it provides more efficient power frequency. Because Active PFC uses a circuit to correct power factor, Active PFC is able to generate a theoretical power factor of over 95%.

Passive PFC
Quote:
Passive PFC uses a capacitive filter at the AC input to correct poor power factor. Passive PFC may be affected when environmental vibration occurs. Passive PFC requires that the AC input voltage be set manually. Passive PFC also does not use the full energy potential of the AC line.

Non-PFC
Quote:
Non-PFC power supplies are no longer recommended. In Europe, power supplies are now required to have either active PFC or passive PFC.

I'd recommend the ones with Active PFC.

thermonuke or just dirty bombs?

The power supply would be nice. I think alot of companies that make PSU's now makea quality product so its almost left to looks. As for cases its a toss up:

this isthe case I have and its great. It huge on the inside with lots of room for the big cpu fans out there now. I have 3 hard drives in mine and have room for 3 more. Tha case is lite and clean looking. It only has a 120 in the front and a 120 in the back but it moves tons of air. The inside of my case deosnt go above 33C which is pretty cool comparedto some case.

what is the different between:

PFC: Active
PFC: Passive

hey ash if you get a case with front intake and back exhuast
the side fan can disrupt airflow some. and can actually slow down
the rpm on the front fans and even the cpu fan depending
on what type of cpu hsf you use.

just something to think about.

Oh thanks man. I DID NOT know that. I think many people don't know as well. How about just a small fan on side like this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E1681...

PS: I have learned alot from u guy. That's fantastic!! :p

that is a nice case should work fine stock

also i was thinking that the side fan being intake
as i had an older case with just a side 120mm thermaltake fan
it was an intake and it dropped my cpu fan from 2500rpms
to 1100 or 1200 prms when it was on.

but my cpu hsf is an arcticfreezer and the side fan was in the
center of the side of my case.

i have a coolermaster centurion 5 case now it flows air from
front to back. no side fan and my cpu fan is at 2500rpms
changing cases didnt change my temps much.

so basicaly if you want to modd your case just picture how the
air will flow and you should be fine.

Thanks. I will have a look. Anyway what is different between:

SLI Support: NVIDIA SLI Certified (Always has image Nvidia SLI Ready)
SLI Support: Yes (No Image)
I notice the first one always has more connector but I am not sure.

and

PFC: Active
PFC: Passive
