    Either Case and PSU for around £40 or cheap case and PSU for around £50

    Right guys what should I do?

    I need to get a case and psu that will happily run a p4 3ghz, couple of gigs of ram and an agp card

    dont really wanna spend more than £50.

    Any suggestions. It has to work well and its a bonus (a good bonus...) if it looks nice and is quiet.

    Thoughts...?

    Dont scrimp on a PSU, not worth it.

    PSUs that come with cases are more often than not...rubbish.

    You have a pretty decent spec PC there, I would be looking at something like a Corsair 520w, that will have enough power if you decide to upgrade the graphics in the future....and it looks good as well.

    Have a look at the Antec NSK6500, it can be picked up for between £50-80 depending on where you shop and any deals that are on. I got mine about 6 months ago for £60 and couldnt be happier, the PSU is a 430w and pretty much silent. I found the case on the whole to be of high quality considering the price.

    Little over budget but you may be eligible for free delivery here. Bear in mind, these things are alot better looking in the steel

    looks better than the akasa zen case imo bu from the todayonly page where it is £31.71

    no idea why scan don't show todayonly prices on the product pages would make life easier.
