    I am building a computer soon (hence all the questions I have been asking)...

    I need a mid tower and I really do not want to spend much more than 50 bucks on a case because I am building more of a buget computer.

    What cases can you guys recommend me?

    I randomly found this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16811119068


    I just want something pretty simple, but not too ugly. Also, of coruse, decent ventilation, and probably 400watts at least (my friend recommended at least 400 watts)

    just kidding. thats a cool case on new egg, i would get that one if i was building a pc. check ebay. i'm sure you could find one like that with a poer supply. but beware, if the power supply is too inexpensive...it most likely sucks

    ya, i just had to replace my power supply because the caps swelled up and died. it also took my dvd-rom drive with it. luckily that's all it took with it. it didn't even spark or anything.

    Shit, I wouldn't spend less than $50 on a power supply, let alone a case and power supply.
    The power supply is the last place you should try to save money on a computer.

    i think i am getting that cooler master case...

    they sell a power supply that sells at new egg for 33 bucks with a 400 or maybe a little more wattage...

    my friend said that it will work great...as long as you buy it from a good company, one such as cooler masters...

    do you guys agree?
