    Hello guys!

    Let's say that I have an Asus P4 t533-C MOBO and a Pentium 4 2.4 ghz 533FSB processor with of course RAM, two hard drives, an optical drive, and a stupid floppy drive. What kind of a case and powersupply should I get with all of that for under $150? And maybe not too fancy of a cooling system.

    Eternat and awesome Chaos

    If you are a U.S. buyer, here's a site with a large selection of cases where you can get some ideas:

    Chaos,

    You should have an all around awesome computer when you get everything together. Bro, you did the right thing and asked the guys here at TT what to get to build your new rig. I got priceless info for the TT guys and everyone else on this forum and I'm beyond happy with my rig. I just order a new tower too,http://www.dealsonic.com/skyhapsma1mm.html. I be interested to see what your rig looks like when its all together. I'll post mine as soon as I get my case and lights.

    Thanx for the support guys.

    Dryadsoul, I have no idea about the cooling with that case. But I will tell you this, it seems to be really awesome (well i mean come on, it has 5 case fans). If I had to do it all over again though, I think that I might have gone with the thermaltake xaser II blue case. Of course that is 60 dollars more. Oh yeah, you did know that neither of these cases come with powersupplies, right?

    Hawks, I know, I can't wait until it is all put together. Because I used the slowest shipping time to save dollars, all of the parts should be here in a week to 2 weeks. Than of course, the biggest and most fun part, putting it all together, baby!!!!!!! But yeah, I will post a stupid pic. of it when I am done. By the way, it will definately have lights and a cool little badge that says something I won't say here! lol

    Anyways I must go. I hope ya got a good case!


    My little fire will never go out, so listen in closely

    Yeah the Thermaltake Xaser II is very pricy, but well worth it if you got the cash or credit,he he. But I stuck with the directron cause it was cheaper, but not so cheap that it is a piece of crap for gaming.

    see ya:shoot3:
