My question my CPU is 125 W and the RAM and the video card ...

1: would all this fit in the case ...
2: any heat issues....can i use some PCI coolers..
3: Most IMP is the 300 W enough...and if not i think i can get some 450 W or should i use this case.. i do like the case 2..worried about the heat issues...
4: i have Corsair H50 liquid cooling would i be able to use it anyway possible with either of the case

  1. Are you planning on just using it as a HTPC? You should probably get a slim formfactor video card if so.

    Nope it would not be HTPC...most of it would be used to look at charting on multiple screen ...browsing...some youtube..and some media streaming from a NAS server to this PC....
  3. The PSUs listed are not adequate. They will just endanger your system. Cheap PSUs are cheap for a reason.

    Good PSU

    Thanks for the answer....so is 300W sufficient...with a 125 CPU + 5770 video card + a Blu ray SATA burner...

    by going at
    http://extreme.outervision.com/PSUEngine

    it says you need 250 so you need atleast 300W power supply...but is this website reliable enough
  5. Sorry I missed the bit about the 5770.

    Both he cases you linked will not accommodate that GPU. They require low-profile cards.

    The 300W might cover it, but really I would use a 380W with a system like that. Get a real ATX case, annd get this PSU, NOW... it's one of the best and dirt cheap atm.

  6. well thanks for this...as is aid because of some requirement i need to be around slim case(WIFE) ...

    so i guess my next best bet would be to get a low profile video card which can accomdate 3 PC as i am not doing any gaming or anything...so any card will go...just some charting...some videos at max...
