    A ups wouldn't hurt either. and a grounded outlet.

              Nice hardware.. But personally I don't like a PC which makes a lamp worthless

              I like a nice big black box somewhere in the corner

                I realize you prpbably didn't have much say in the components, but for everyone else who may be looking to build or upgrade, DO NOT buy a case with a no-name brand PSU. If you are going to spend the money to buy a high end video card, 64 bit processor, etc, you need to protect that investment. A high quality PSU will help to protect your components. A cheap no-name PSU that comes with most cases (even Antec cases have been known to have no-name PSUs installed) is not as reliable as you might think. Sure, it might not quit working on you in the 3 or 4 years that most people own a PC, but it can cause you to experience a whole host of performance and stabilty issues. Also, a low quality PSU can actually raise your utility bill due to the fact that it doesn't operate efficiently. Low quality PSUs are not known to be energy efficient, no matter what the package says.

                What you could have done, Crembels, was to forego the X800 XT and purchased an X800 XL. The difference in price would have easily paid for a high quality PSU. Peace of mind is more important than a few extra fpses. I have an AMD 64 3500 Newcastle, Radeon X800 XL, and 1 GB of memory. I have yet to run any app or game that gives this thing a run for its money. And yes, I spent the money on a very good PSU.

                I hope this doesn't come off as brow-beating, but I hope others will take heed when it comes to power supplies.
                Uh, I was thinking of building a computer. Thanks. BTW, any suggested brand names?

                  To all that bagged on the case, what case do you have or think is the best?

                    i don't mind the case but I do see room for improvement.
                    I would have used 2 drives instead of one. I like using raid I notice the performance increase.

                      Here's the one I have. Plenty of room for components and airflow, as well as ease of swapping drives, etc.

                      Thermaltake Tsunami Dream

                      Start off by checking this link... PSU Calculator

                      A few PSUs you may want to look at are these...
                      OCZ Powerstream
                      Antec Neopower
                      Enermax Noisetaker

                      The better PSU manufacturers you want to look for are Antec, Enermax, PC Power and Cooling, and OCZ.

                      The mid-grade manufacturers are Coolermaster and Ultra Products.

                      The PSU manufacturers to stay away from are Raidmax, MGE, and PowMax.

                        baahhh that case doesn't look much better than the OP's imo. Check out a chieftec server case... very solid-looking with less flashy-wannabe-ness... (of course, i guess it's all personal taste, but i hate flashy computer cases - my friend has one with all sorts of different colored lights and every time i walk into his room i think i've entered a strip club...)

                        for PSUs stick with Antec, OCZ, Enermax, PC Power & Cooling... My next PC will probably be based around a OCZ Powerstream 600..

                          That's your opinion and that's ok. However, if you take the time to actually look at the link I posted and/or see this case in a store, you will see that this one is far superior to most other cases. The fit and finish, as well as ease of use of the drive bays and expansion card slots, make this case the winner for me. I looked long and hard for a quality case. Other cases had too many cheap plastic parts or doors that were flimsy. Many of them looked awesome sitting on a webpage, but in person looked like dog doo. Not the Tsunami Dream. It's all top quality.

                          I really could care less about all of the fancy lights. Mine only has one fan with blue LEDs and two blue LEDs on the front door.

                          The case is nice and quiet thanks to the rubber bushings on the hard drive mounts. Cuts down on vibration.

                            actually, i've built a system for a friend with that case. The workmanship was great, LOTS of room, really a great case if you look at the features.... The only thing I didn't like about it was the look... I just don't like the curved front panel...

                              That's more to do with them sitting naked at their PC than the lights tbfh.
