Case/Power Supply Help

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)

  1. A good 300-350W PSU will do fine.

    My dual-PSU PC is so powerfull that the neighbourhood dimms when I turn it on :eek:
  2. 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!

  4. If you want to replace the PSU then you might have to replace the mohterboard too. Dell uses proprietary PSU and MB.
