Hey. I am in real need of an upgrade for my pc. so I have decided I will get a case and a psu. Sure, the antec 900 is a good choice but I only have $100 to spend on both! I am planning on getting an Ati HD 4850. what would be the best case and psu combo I could get for $100? I would really like my case to be stylish with a side window. it needs to be standard size mid tower. please post links where i can get it.
sorry for bad punctuation & grammer. i'm doing this on my phone and dead tired. i know my question is a bit vague. but what would you do with $100 in your hand, needing a case and psu?
I checked half a dozen technical references for the ATI 4850 video card. Only one 75 watt 6-pin PCI-e power cable is required. Total power consumption for a quad core based system and one 4850 isn't that bad. During gaming sessions the pc systems used a little less than 300 watts. That's consistent with a Tom's Hardware article published last January about power consumption during gaming.
I would recommend the Corsair VX450. Corsair has a reputation for high quality power supplies. They consistently earn high marks in technical reviews. They are stable, reliable, and come with a 5 year warranty. It is currently available at newegg.com for $64.99:
I know the price is $39.99 but shipping is free. Free shipping with promo code EMCMMLP24, ends 11/9. If you figure shipping at about $9.00 that makes it $5.00 under your $100.00 budget and you'll be getting a high quality psu and a mid-tower pc case with a window.
