    £43.88 inc vat, inc postage. Bargain, methinks. All it needs is a lick of paint, couple of blowholes, maybe a window if you're feeling saucy

    You could try:

    AOpen H700B Full Tower 350W PSU (CA-006-AO) These are either £90.36 inc VAT for the beige and £93.53 for the black

    or one of these
    Chieftec Dragon DA-01BD Full Tower - Hi-Fi Black (CA-029-CT) These are £97 regardless of colour.

    Personally I like the Lian-Li cases as they are nice and big, lots of room and are aluminium so its defo gets my vote but I owned a Chieftec Dragon Full tower before I downsized to my CM Black Widow (strokey strokey) and I love it but not as much as my CM
    Signature in development ... please be patient

    I would recommend this case, £51.70

    http://web6.scan.co.uk/Products/Info.asp?WPID=58932

    It is nice and large, with 6 internal 3.5", 2 external, and 4 external 5.25", so plenty of drive space. It is also a tool free case, thumb screws on the outside, and a special drive mounting system which requires no screws to insert drives, and also a special slider lock system instead of screws on the expansion slots. It has 7 80mm fan mounts, 2 front, 2 back, 2 side, 1 blowhole top.

    It also comes in an aluminium version if thats what you like, but costs more at £72.85. I think it would probably be better, as the only thing i am not sure I like so much is the plastic drive fronts, but im not sure if they would be different anyway.

    http://web6.scan.co.uk/Products/Info.asp?WPID=58928

    The case also comes in some different colours, just check out the scan site. Anyway I would highly recommend the case.

    no, it dosesn't have a slide out tray, but there is so much room i didn't have any problem fitting the motherboard. I have never used watercooling my self, so I don't really know, there is certianly alot of room though. I would say there is probably enough room between the motherboard and the drive bays to put a resevoir and pump. But as i say I don't have any experience with it.
    This is certainly the largest case I have ever had though. It is very tall, and was amazingly large when it arrived in the post, bigger than i was expecting.
    The microphone, headphones, 2 USB, and firewire ports, located on the top of the case, I find very useful, and blend in nicely with the blowhole vent.
