So I need a case that can fit this mobo, with space for the PCI slots etc. It doesn't have to be pretty; the most important things are low cost, ease of use, and enough space to do future additions/upgrades.

Also: If I plan to do some slight overclocking and eventually add another GPU, which power supply do I need?

More about first build case
  1. the 750w should be enough

    what is your budget on the case? low cost means different things to different people...
  2. Great! and under $80 would be preferable. basically as cheap as i can get away with without being flimsy or hard to work with. i dont need windows or anything.

    Oh- but a couple USB and maybe a headphone jack on the front would be nice. any thoughts?
  3. meant to say under $50 was preferable. I really don't know what i'm looking for.
  4. looking at the cooler master; what do you think of this one?
