Decision time once again! :D 


Antec P180 Aluminium Super Miditower
EZ Cool Alpine G5 Silver Aluminium Case

I am looking for a case that is well cooled and looks simple but pleasant.


Corsair HX Series 520W Modular PSU - ATX12V v2.2 APFC
Hiper 580W Type-R Modular PSU SLI/CrossFire

I am looking for something with a futureproofed amount of power and a modular design.

Other suggestions are welcomed, but try not to suggest something just because you have it. :p

Yeash, righto then. Not many of them are there?
My only real option therefore is:
Enermax Galaxy 850W CrossFire ATX2.2 Modular PSU
As I can't seem to find Silverstone PSUs in the UK.

A worthwhile investment of about $300 (over there) in your opinion?

Also, any reasons for why the P180 is the better choice, I know it is good, but both cases seem good.

Fair enough.
Any further thoughts on the PSU.
I would rather not have an 850wats overkill PSU that hardly fits in my case that's all. :lol:

the new 8 pin PCI-e power connector

Is it likely that modular PSUs will eventually have such a connector available for after market sales?
It it a plug it in affair or does this new connector require different internals?

Do you think the Corsair HX Series 520W or 620W Modular is a good choice then?
It seems to have alright amps and a good reputation.[/quote]
