I'm going to upgrade my P4-1.3gig Dell Dimension 8100, and I need recommendations for a case and power supply. Here's what the specs will be after upgrading:
*P4-2.4 Gig (possibly 2.53 gig) *Asus P4S8X Socket 478 DDR motherboard *512MB PC2700 DDR RAM (possibly 1024MB) *Radeon 9500 Pro video card *60MB 7200RPM Hard Drive *External 3.5" floppy, a DVD drive, and a CD-RW drive. *3Com Network Card, an old SB Live! sound card
What case, and what wattage power supply should I get?
(Note: I'm not going to OC)

A good 300-350W PSU will do fine.
My dual-PSU PC is so powerfull that the neighbourhood dimms when I turn it on
So your basically building a new PC? good. Dell's use propriatary mobo's and PSU's that cost LOTS to replace.
PSU wise i would go for a 350W unit from antec enermax or toptower. As for a case... how much do u want to spend? Lianli, antec, enermax, atlas chieftec cases aregood, but costly.
anything relly that is well designed, looks decent, has lots of room inside and most importantly, good airflow!
