    I like this: http://www.komplett.co.uk/k/ki.asp?sku=301962&cks=PRL. It's aluminium, so it is light. It's well made, motherboard tray, lots of thumb screws. It's the best I could find for the price.

    I still like the Coolermaster wavemasters and the various clones like the Silverstone Temjin J05 & the Thermaltake Tsunami.

    I like the enermax PSUs they are efficient, reliable and quiet. I think 600W is overkill for 99% of PCs and the enermax 485W will be more than adequate. Everyone recommends Tagan but they are not as efficient although they are good in other respects. I'd like to give the Fortron blue storm a try which is another very efficient PSU and slightly cheaper than the enermax with a single 120mm fan.

    I picked up the black cavalier 3 for £35 at komplett and it's a great case for the money. I was looking for another the other day and the cheapest I found was silver with a side window for £43 at scan.

    Lian Li PC-60 (Aluminium) or PC-61 (Black Aluminium)

    I paid around £80 for my PC-61 and have adored it. Though it is a bit hard to find a tape drive fascia in black >:E

    Anything with 120mm fan holes

    I would have used to say Lian Li as I used to swear by them but the Akasa Eclipse I have (or had ) is the best case I have ever used. I have built around 300 systems in my time across different platforms and cases and this is by far the best.

    120mm fans and lots of space
