    Yeah typical ATX PSU's are intended to be used

    You might check out the Coolermaster 340 Elite as well.. similar Idea

    You get the Coolermaster Elite 340 bundled with a PSU for around £50 too!

    the 340 also has that little extra width which means it can take 120mm case fans

    I agree with the others, the CM Elite 340 is a nice little case (if you are already have a psu).

    If you are looking for a matx case/psu combo, I would also like to recommend the Antec NSK3480 (comes with 380w psu). Unfortunately, Antec do not sell it without the psu.

    cheers guys, the reason i didnt go for the coolermaster, much as i would have liked to was becuase of the powersupply, im not sure how many connectors and other bits it has, therefore i just went with a case and a seperate psu, which comes to the same price anyway as the coolermaster £50
