HI,
I need suggestion's for a good PSU & CASE. My Hradware details are

1. AMD FX 8150 OC at 4.0 Ghz
2. ASUS M5A99X EVO
3. MSI TWIN FROZR II 560 GTX TI 2 GB
4. WD 1.5 TB SATA
5. 250 Gb HITACGI SATA
6. 1 DVD RW+

My problem is that my machine is over heating a LOT and shut's down when i do heavy stuff most of the times while playing games. My CPU temp is 70 , MB is 65 and Graphic card is 85 so for max i can play for 15 min max and the whole machine goes off. earlier i think it's an issue with graphic card so i got it replaced and now i think it's an issue with my PSU and case. My PSU is not that branded it's a local chinese 550W. Your suggestion will be highly appreciated Money is not an issue all i need is a good system so i can enjoy the high end games.

Don't get cooler master power supplies, buying a cheap power supply will be a major mistake.
Go with Seasonic/Antec/Corsair/Silverstone/XFX for a power supply.
Here is a good PSU that will allow you some expansion while providing a safe ammount of power for your parts:

As for the case, I would save your money and go with this case http://www.amazon.com/SilverStone-Tower-Reinforced-Plas...

Silverstone has a really good record and has high quality products. Also isn't as ugly (in my opinion) as the HAF cases.

Ah, okay. Well I would reccomend the Corsair PSUs as well, especially the HX series (Professional series) Here's a link to one: http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Professional-Certified-co...

Corsair will be on top of XFX in Cooler master in quality probably. XFX is still good though, just stay away from CM PSUs. You can probably go with the CM Case and do fine.

Water cooling is really good if you want maximum performance and overclocking potential but is a lengthy process to make a custom system. Pre-built loops normally don't offer an advantage over high-end air coolers.

Read that before you attempt to build your own water cooling system, unless you already have built one.

Defiantly get a PSU from XFX or Corsair because ALL of there PSU are of very great quality. The Cool Master PSUs are hit and miss some are actually pretty good but others are just junk so I would say play it safe if you have access to XFX and Corsair PSUs use them they are among the best and I would even say just to be for sure go with XFX PSU because they are all made by Seasonic that way you will not get burned because Seasonic is the BEST. Don't bother with water cooling it is really unnecessary and real is just a novelty. A great and Cheap CPU Cooler is Master Hyper 212+ or Evo.

:D  i'll go with CM Case and Xrossair PSU i think for my specs 650W will be fine as i am not planning to do a SLI and even if i don't opt for Water cooling my machine will still perform well or shall i consider any other cooling solution.

If India is very hot like I think it is then this is a good closed loop CPU cooler http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

You would be just fine to spend a little less on the PSU and go for a quality 550watt unit like the one I suggested from XFX. Just a thought.
