PC will work 24/7, and will have an Asus Maximus Formula mobo, Intel Q6600+Geforce 8800GT. What would be the minimum Watt I need?? 400W?? 350W?? 500W?? I'm looking for a quiet case - how would you order the following ???
A - RAIDMAX SAGITTA2 430W ATX
B - THERMALTAKE VA8003BWS ARMOR ATX
C - ANTEC 900
D - COOLERMASTER CENTURION 534 430W
and would you recommend the PU
ANTEC TRUEPOWER TRIO 650W 80+
for any/all of them, if they don't have their own PU??
And would I need a cooler for any of these cases?? (some of them - Thermaltake Armor - have 3 fans)
I've got an Antec 900 and that 650W Trio. Both are nice pieces. I've talked about the plusses and drawbacks of the 900 in other threads, none were a dealbreaker for me since I have fairly simple needs.
I've also owned a Centurion 532 which I'm fairly certain the internals are identical to the 534. It's inexpensive and I like that it was a toolless chassis.
I'm also a fan of the thermaltake armor series but they are a lttle too big for my desk.
I think any of the cases will be a good choice, it comes down to personal preference. However, I think the PSU for the RAIDMAX may not be what you'd call a top quality part.
