I don't think you are. The one you linked is $74 shipped. The Rosewill Green 630 is $59 shipped. I don't count MIR's, because money that I may or may not get back in 12-16 weeks doesn't count to me. I look at out of pocket expense.

Again, that Rosewill Green 630w is already more than enough PSU for the OP's needs. He could run 460 SLI off a good 550w PSU easily enough.

The Rosewill Challenger is a great case. The only other one for that price point that I'd recommend is the Antec 300.

If you don't count the MIR, yes, it's more expensive. It's just my personal preference not to use the molex adapters, but he can choose to do so if he'd like. You're also right, 550w is plenty of power.

For a new case....

I'd vote for an NZXT Classic. The Beta EVO, Gamma, Source 210, etc, etc. Very solidly built cases for not too terribly much money. And they've got great cable management holes already there, and most are painted all black inside and out (some white).

Another great budget case is Rosewill. I'm not familiar with their current lineup, but something with good cable management and good ventiliation shouldn't be too much from Rosewill, and I know they have them...just don't know the names.

Just a few budget options that I know of.

NZXT makes fantastic cases for the money

Hmmm, I can tell you this much. My Beta EVO has seen a LOT of abuse, and I mean a lot. Normally with cases, the side panels ALWAYS end up getting stripped (for me). This case, all the screws are still working fine. There's a few scratches, but the paint is still holding up and looking good (remember, lots of abuse). The cable management is excellent (just look at my profile pic here). All in all, its an absolutely solid case for the money, it really is. I've been abusing this case for over a year now, and its still straight, all the screws work, and the paint isn't too badly shot.

It's not exactly my "style". I prefer those sleek Lian Li cases....but when you're on a budget, there's nothing wrong with the Beta EVO (and its almost sleek looking, not quite as nice as the Source 210 though).

Rosewill cases are great, but with the ones I've owned, the side panel screws always ended up stripping out. They're still a good choice though.

I'm gonna get the original rosewill Psu and case combo for 100.

Other than that, does the gtx 460 come with its own molex adapters?

Just make sure its the Green or HIVE series Rosewill PSU.

The GTX460's should come with the adapters. If they don't, they're only a few dollars (literally).
