    a low-end lian li then, which is a nice & light & alu - but you won't get a PSU as well for that price. you might need to find an extra few quid & get a budget PSU like the Q-Tec 550 to go with.

    I prefer to pick my case in the 'flesh'. I like to personally verify its solid construction, ventilation, size, mountings, looks etc. Much of the time this saves you a lot of cash too! As for the PSU if your needs are moderate or budget very tight the std PSU (300W generic) should be okay but if your kit's worth a fair bit protect it and feed it well with a good quality PSU from Antec or Enermax (although there are others), 350W should suffice (easily beat generic 400W) but 400W may give you that satisfying longer term feeling. I would MUCH rather spend the extra on the PSU than the case! Just my thoughts...

    if you go to lans alot why not build a gaming spec system - in some thing like a PC-50 or as mentioned the cheiftec dragon range.

    the only problem with the cheiftec's is that there heavy - full steel case.

    and the problem i see with the PC 50 is that the PSU sits on it's side above the heat sink and fan - not good for cooling!
