http://www.amazon.com/10-Bay-Computer-Case-550W-9-84-In... Is this a good deal for this case? Is it a large case that is suitable for a custom build gaming PC?

Good Deal for a "Home / General Office PC"

Bad Deal for a "Gaming PC", as the PSU is suspect and case cooling is questionable. I wouldn't trust a new gaming system with the PSU in that case. You don't want to skimp on quality for cost. You want to stick with trusted brands like SeaSonic, Corsair, XFX...

Alright thanks. Im actually looking for a case without a psu. My thought with the other was once i get the case, strip that psu out of the case and it could go towards another psu. Im buying a 500w 7x12v rail gaming psu from my friend for $40. He ran his rig with it that had a 5770, quad core, and 4 gb ram with it no problem, so a case without a psu in it would be ideal. Thanks for the help.

Can you list the name and model of that PSU? 7 x 12 volt rails on a 500watt does not sound right.

Thats what he told me, ive seen it, and didnt know for sure anything about it, except that it is 500w. Could you recommend a good psu for around $50?

That is a great psu but im not sure if it is in my budget. Im going to start small but make sure i have a lot of room for upgrading along the way.

Here is another option (a little better IMO) for a PSU in your range...

Corsair CMPSU-600CX
