I'm building a pc with Intel 2.53, Gigabyte GA-8sQ800 MB, Ati 9500 pro 128mb, WD 120 GB 7200 rpm Hard drive, cdrom, 48x CDRW.
I already ordered or bought most of the components, and now I need to go drive around and buy a case with power supply.
First question is, would my motherboard (Gigabyte GA-8SQ800)support front usb connectors?
After reading through some posts and guides, I'm thinking of buying Antec, Enermax, or Enlight cases with ps. Just wondering if 350w should be enough for my system, or should I just spend the extra dough for a 400w. Any recommendations with specific model numbers are more than welcome. TIA.
Looks like that board does have front USB connections. I think 350w should do it (if it's a quality brand like Antec), but if in doubt, go for the 400. How much you looking to spend on a case? Can't go wrong with Antec. SX835II, SX635BII, LanBoy, SX1040BII, etc.
Thanks for the info~. Lol, I've written down 3 models I might possibly buy while browsing around and you've recommended all 3. Feels good to have my ideas confirmed by someone else. Looks like I'll be spending about $90-$100 for a known brand case, which I don't mind. I don't plan on overclocking anything so, I'll probably end up getting a 350 for now.
