Hi Guys
I'm planning to get a Thermaltake V3 which comes with a 450W PSU
And I kinda feel the size of the case is small , what do you think ?
Will this case be fine for a Gainward GTS 250 which is 9 inches in Length ?
And also how is the air flow ?
And I don't know about the PSU Performance on the rails ?
I plan to use another PSU about 500 - 600 watts since I'm very very tight on budget
I hope that will be enough if I OC the CPU to 4 Ghz :D 
Can you suggest which one to go for ?

Here's my config :hello: 

Intel Core i5 - 750
Asus P7P55D-E
Hitachi SATA HDD
TV Tuner Card
4 GB DDR3 G.Skill Ripjaws (2000 MHz)
Gainward GTS 250 1024MB
3 120mm Fans
1 120mm LED FAN

Please tell me if you have any suggestions
Your feedback would be greatly appreciated
Thank-you :) 
Happy New Year :pt1cable:

I cant find the rail details
Sorry but can you please help me with that as well

Under the specifications tab.
Low end Thermaltake power supplies aren't very good.

I use the cooler master realpower m520, really good quiet and cheap supply. using it with an OC, (and see my config for others) under else a gts250.

case looks fine for size and airflow, but if your so tight on budget why do you throw out the included PSU. buy a case without a psu thats a little nicer, and of higher quality. I have a similar case to that and I HATE THE DESIGN. yes its easy to work with but it feels so cheap and the HDD mounts are ***. I got it and the moment i started building with it the backside started bending and AARGH i got really pissed off.

anyways sorry had to say that I dont want ppl to make the wrong choises as I did.

hihi, I got an Antec mini p180, and i LOVE IT!!! best case ever

Hey thanks a lot for the information
No your absolutely right
But somehow I just love the looks of that cabinet and the front LED Lights
I'm not going for a cabinet with a higher PSU cause they are too expensive
It makes more sense getting this cause it costs me AUS $79 with the PSU.
And a 500w PSU like Thermaltake Litepower,Coolermaster Extreme Power,Vantec ION costs $65
I can get like $30 for the 450W PSU if i sell it
Well any advice which case to go for with a 500w PSU ?
Is anyone using the Thermaltake v3 and how is the body inside ???
Cheers :)

Hey another thing
Is it advisable to have the PSU on top or down ?
I find it very strange having the PSU down
