ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I am looking for a case and a PSU that will work together with what I have. Linking parts below. I also have a Geforce 9800 GT if the motherboards on board video isnt good enough. I am mainly concerned with a power supply small enough to fit in a Media Center Case that has 24 and 8 pin supplies for the mother board.
I am actually trying to refurbish an old hp that had a motherboard go bad is where the CPU is coming from. So the phenom I is used/free. There will be no gaming so I will probably just throw the 9800gt on craigslist to help pay for the case/psu.
