Would you please advice me on two things ?
1.A good quality case for atx board mid tower ? between 50-80 dollars and not flashy..Preference for cooling and quality...Liked gigabyte cases before....400R carbide ? Or another suggestion ?
2.A good PSU modular ... 700-750 Watts ? AX750 ? But I didn't like the idea for the fan stops at no load ! Budget between 100-180 dollars...

Thanks folks.

For only $40 more, you can get an 80+ GOLD certified PSU that has a fully modular interface backed up by a legendary PSU manufacturer. As good as those ModXStream PSU's are, I wouldn't buy it given the fact that there's something significantly better for only a bit more cost.

I have to agree with mocchan. I have the x750 PSU by seasonic and it is bullitproof. I especially like the fact that the fan only comes on when the PSU is under load. really helps withe the noise factor. The Corsair AX750 is just a re-badged Seasonic X750, so get whichever one is less expensive at the time. :D

Yep, exactly.

On a side note, I see that OP mentioned he doesn't want a passive PSU (fan doesn't turn on unless needed). This is not a bad thing as most PSU's nowadays are designed and built to be this way.

80+ certified =/= 80+ GOLD.

80+ certification = 80% efficiency accross 20%, 50%, and 100% load.

80+ GOLD certification = 87% efficiency for 20% load, 90% efficiency for 50% load, 87% efficiency for 100% load.

The OCZ ModXStream Pro 700W is not a good option.

The Seasonic X-750 is also semi-fanless (fan less at low loads), so if you refuse to buy a semi-fanless PSU then you could have:
Rosewill Capstone-750M ($120 @ Amazon)
http://pcpartpicker.com/part/rosewill-power-supply-caps...
Or
NZXT Hale90 750W ($132 @ Amazon)
http://pcpartpicker.com/part/nzxt-power-supply-hale9075...
Or
SilverStone Strider Gold Evolution 750W SST-ST75F-G ($150 @ Newegg / $20 rebate / $11 shipping)
http://pcpartpicker.com/part/silverstone-power-supply-s...

However the lack of fan at low loads is not a problem for these high efficiency units.
http://www.silentpcreview.com/Seasonic_X650
If you read that review, page 4 in particular, you will see that the PSU is wasting 20W at most by the time the fan comes on. 20W is not a lot of heat.


Explain how its not a good option please with proof?

JonnyGuru actually said that the ModXStream PSU's are actually half-decent; they can actually pull their rated wattage.

The only thing that I personally think that would make this PSU not so great of a purchase, for me (at least), is the lack of 80+ BRONZE certification (come on, at least BRONZE this day and age) as well as the lack of a fully modular interface. For only a few bucks more, there's so many options out there.

If you bought it locally, then exchange it. If you bought it online, don't even bother.

How about:
http://www.hardocp.com/article/2008/11/12/ocz_700w_modx...

Also I don't think it is worth a penny more than the 600W version because it has exactly the same cable config and only has ~50W more available on it's +12V rails compared to the 600W version, which itself only has 504W.
Even a 650W PSU should have four PCIe connectors, the MXSP700W only has two.
The fact that it is at least 4 years old is another negative because newer units are often built to higher standards.
If you've already got it then unless it is functionally not sufficient for your needs then there's no need to replace it, but I would disagree with it being recommended nowadays as almost always you can get something better.

It uses a 13.5cm fan from Globe Fan RL4Z S1352512HH, which has a maximum speed of 1800RPM. The 600W version (which uses a Globe Fan RL4Z B1352512H) has a favourable fan curve, so it is likely that the 700W version does as well.

I don't notice PSU fan speed curves in general. But, that would be for you to decide as I don't personally own a ModXStream.

Is this better than a corsair enthusiast and should i get the 750 or 850watt? They sem liek good prices

They're generally the same quality. Both are made by Seasonic if I remember correctly.

Only get a higher wattage if you're planning to Crossfire, otherwise, don't even bother.

ATX PSU will work with a standard ATX motherboard and it has 8 SATA connectors.

You should really do your own research for this kind of stuff :)  It will benefit you more.
