Sturdy cases with good cooling and plenty of room. With the PSUs I think the only ones I would trust would be the Corsair 650TX and some of the Thermaltake Toughpowers. The Corsair would be my top choice. I don't have much experience with the CPU coolers, so can't really say. rui_li83 July 10, 2008 5:19:50 AM Thanks. Thermaltake ToughPower 600W and Corsair 650TX and NZXT PP800, their prices are very similar on cyberpowerpc.com, which one do you recommend for my configuration? I think my system doesn't need a 800w psu right? Can't find your answer ? Ask !
