Case and PSU recommendation - UK new build

This is all for an i7 920 build with:
Asus P6T v2 Deluxe
Corsair 6GB (3x2GB) DDR3 1600
512MB XFX GTS250 738MHz PCI-E
WD 1TB black

I've currently got one of the early aluminium CoolerMaster cases, but am looking for something smaller. I need only 1 5.25" bay, and perhaps 3 HDD bays. Please recommend me a lean and mean case, since I live in a small flat.

Secondly, I have a Zalman ZM400B-APS power supply. Do I need a new one?

  1. New powersupply, yes. What are you looking for in a case? Do looks matter or do you just want something with beastly cooling.

  3. I'm after a relatively quiet and small size case, but also good looking. Budget isn't a huge issue.

  5. You will definatly need a new PSU to power your new rig.
    Look for a 500w+ Corsair, Seasonic, PCP&C or Antec Earthwatts PSU.

    A few good options would be:

    Corsair 650w: £71.98 inc VAT

    I am not so up to date on which cases are best but the following cases look prety decent:

    Lian Li PC-7 YCF B PLUS II: £87.99 inc VAT
