Hi THG.

You might of noticed that iam been posting topics alot recently, well its because iam desperate for a good Case and PSU solution.

So far i have read reviews and checked prices on these Cases with bundled PSU's (Both of which i don't really like)

The Antec Sonata II w/ TruePower 2.0 450W ATX 2.0 PSU (Which would not run my soon to arrive MSI 7900GTO,and some pore person had one blow up hes Abit motherboard'on newegg'.)

The Antec P150 w/ Antec Neo 430w HE PSU (Which the psu still seems a little underpowered and unreliable 'no -5v rail'.)

After heavy thinking and taking onboard the communitys thoughts i might have just come up with a good solution, Please tell me what you think

The Case is a SilverStone TJ04 which to i will be adding a Antec Tricool 120MM at the back, as for the PSU i chose a Zalman ZM460B-APS which seems very powerfull for a single core/gpu system of mine. Both add up to around $250AU

One thing i need to know about the PSU is......

Will it Handle a C2D E6400,Abit AB9,Cosair 533mhz DDR2 1GB value ram and a Seagate 320GB Sata II hard drive (When i have the money to get it.)

Thankyou for your allready great help and i hope you can help me out with my CASE/PSU selection.

BTW Budget is Max $300AU

:EDIT: Just Read some Reviews on the SilverStone ST50EF 500w ATX2.2 PSU it looks good also!

So meny Choices could somebody HELP ME!

Yeah, you're better off buying them separately. It might cost more, but at least you can choose a good PSU.
