    Default Help me choice an ATX case.....

    All the cases at Newegg that I liked had PSU's with them. I'm not sure if the PSU on these cases would be compatible with a P4 LGA 775 mainboard or not or even if they are quality enough for the mainboard, 3GHz CPU, and an ATI X700 Pro PCIe videocard that I'll be putting in the system. I guess if worse comes to worse I can chuck the PSU but I'm not the best judge at case design. Is there any one case you guys would choice over the other 3 here?

    Just toss the PSU if you're going to waste that much money on a case. If you want a quality case and PSU, go with a Thermaltake or Antec.

    Antec cases are incredibly ugly at Newegg. I wouldn't touch one with a 100 foot pole. Some of the Thermaltake cases at Newegg look somewhat nice but they come with a high price tag and are too common for my likings, they need some updates. Lets just say I've owned fancier for less than half the price.
    I want to stick to one of my four selections while holding on to the possibility that maybe the PSU that comes with them is good enough and compatible for my hardware. I could spend $80 for a good Thermaltake or Antec or PSU but I'm tring to avoid it if possible. I have 2 430w True power Atec's in 2 of my systems right now that I could swap around providing their compatable with the new LGA board.

    I might consider a new compatable ATX12V 2.0 PSU but I'm not sure whats good since I've never owned one yet. Anybody have some suggestions?

    update. Looks like I'll need one anyway. All LGA boards have 24 pin main adapters on them. :( Back to the drawing board.
