So far I have decided on the following for my new system:

Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-Z68XP-UD3
CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz

I am leaning towards a GTX 450 perhaps.
I want to put 4 GB RAM in this system.

I am looking for suggestions for a good basic case and power supply for this system.

I had decided on the Antec Three Hundred, but if there is a better value case to be had, I would be willing to change.

The GPU I am considering has a 450 Watt power requirement. Considiring the other components I have listed, what size power supply will I need? Will 600-650 W be enough? Any particular brands I should stick with? or perhaps particular models? Trying to stay ~$75 USD, but could go to $100.

Yeah, it is. That is their budget lineup but it's still stronger than many higher priced units of questionable make.

So don't go for the GTX450? That is what my first choice is. Not the GTS.

I think you mean the GTS 450. Or maybe the GTX 460.

Don't get the GTX 450 or a GTS 450 the 5770/6770 is better then both of them.=a GTX 460 better then all of them.
