    TJ08, SG01 Or SG03?

    hey guys,
    I'm in the process of buliding a pc for a friend mainly for office tasks. I've listed the specs at the bottom just in case they make a differences to your recommendations, but basically I need a small case for it that wont result in cooking the hardware and seeing as i'm used to building in cm-690's(my weapon of choice ) I dont really know which one would be best and cool. So basically could i get your opinions about which case to choose... cheerz...
    System Specs:
    AMD 5050e
    Asus 8200
    2Gb Corsair
    250GB Samsung
    Corsair 450w (or cheaper psu lol)

    Re: TJ08, SG01 Or SG03?

    TJ08 is a great way to go. I'd suggest a modular PSU if you can (OCZ's modextreme is very reasoanble). The fans need voltage control else they are noisey as hell.

    If you are a coolermaster fan though and he is happy with the slightly cheaper look of it, the coolermaster Elite 340 is only £30 or about £50 with a coolermaster PSU (but I wouldn't have that). You do need a fan(s) for it though, 1x 120m will do.

    Don't forget the Antec NSK3480 either which will need a couple of 92mm fans to get great airflow (but it's good with just the one 120mm it has) but it comes with a 380W earthwatts for around £70 these days.

    Re: TJ08, SG01 Or SG03?

    Have you thought of going for a mini-ITX build??

    Build One - AMD based

    A Sugo SG05 and a mini ITX 780G motherboard will do the job.

    This is the list of parts:

    Silverstone SG05 ~ £86

    http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Silve...00W-80plus-PSU

    It comes with a 300w PSU and a 120mm fan.

    http://www.silverstonetek.com/produc...=sg05&area=usa

    http://www.hexus.net/content/item.php?item=17489

    J&W 780G mini ITX motherboard ~ £95

    http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/JandW...X-HDMI-DVI-VGA

    The motherboard has a PCI-E 4x slot and has a good review:

    http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/mot...-motherboard/1

    AMD X2 5050e ~ £51

    http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/AMD-A...2-Cache-Retail

    2gb RAM ~ £24

    http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/2GB-(...ECC-Unbuffered

    Samsung F1 320gb ~ £40

    http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/320-G...MB-Cache-89-ms

    Samsung slimline DVD writer ~ £26

    http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Samsu...ook-PATA-black

    Total cost will be around £325.

    Build two -Intel based

    An alternate build would be the following socket 775 motherboard:

    http://www.play.com/PC/PCs/4-/940465...TX+Motherboard

    This motherboard comes with a PCI-E 16x slot and integrated wifi. It also uses standard DIMMs unlike the 780G mini ITX motherboard.

    Here is a review:

    http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/mot...-wifi-review/1

    You can get an E5200 too as it runs cool for around £57.

    http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Intel...B-Cache-Retail

    It probably consumes less power than the X2 5050e as it is a 45nm processor. The 9300 series chipset also has a low power consumption.

    The other bits will be the same as for the AMD based build.

    This will raise the build cost to around £350 to £360.

    Re: TJ08, SG01 Or SG03?

    tbh the mini itx build looks like a good option but I kinda wanted to stay away from ati graphics because a. this may turn out to be a linux build in which case i know the ati drivers are horrible and b. the drivers aint much better for windows lol... also i'm trying to keep this build at around £250, thanks for the suggestion though... so it looks like i'll be going with the tj08 case for the build... now i just need a psu... i saw staffsmike's suggestions but i was wondering if anyone knows of a decent psu for around 30 quid, it needs to be cheap but not the kinda cheap that will explode lol... i'm guessing the system will draw about 300w max...

    Re: TJ08, SG01 Or SG03?

    The 9300 is an Nvidia chipset! Here is a review of the SG05 for future reference:

    http://vr-zone.com/articles/silverst....html?doc=6703

    It can take an HD4870!!

    Perhaps you should go for an Nvidia 8200 or 8300 based motherboard?

    Re: TJ08, SG01 Or SG03?

    Check Scan Today Only for last weekend!! It ends by midday today so be quick!! There are some good PSUs on offer:

    http://www.scan.co.uk/TodayOnly/Index.aspx

    There is a 400w FSP for £28 which has 85% effiency and a 350w Silverstone for £23. These should be enough for such a low powered build.

    I used a Corsair 450VX in a TJ08 case, and ended up stuffing all the excess cables in the second optical drive area. As the cables are pretty long it wasn't ideal.

    The modular 450HX wasn't in existance at the time. The 450VX cost £44 compared to Scan's current price of the 450HX of £69

    I did the same thing which is annoying. I would get the OCZ modextreme even though I do prefer corsair.
