post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hello all, im looking to purchase a case but curious what is a good brand for case and a psu, I know there is alot of generic brands out there that seem to be good (some) but i'd like to know from you guys. Im new to this so i would like to start at a low price but get nice quality, the more I learn and progress the more ill spend tongue.gif here is the link: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2337812&CatId=1842

Welcome to the OCN family thumb.gif

Try this case or my fav. is this one.

But it is a personal thing when it comes to cases, just look for one with cable management, PSU at the bottom, and a fan on top is a big bonus.

As for PSU's; Corsair, OCZ, Seasonic and XFX are all good brands. For which one is a matter of system build and budget.

What kind of parts are you putting in this computer and what is your budget? I just built a PC in an Antec P280 and it was great.

At work I get paid every 2 weeks (I work less then part time) so my plan is to buy something for my build every time I get paid, a little here and there. But in between I want to learn and expand my knowledge. I would like to spend $100 for case and power supply if thats possible. I would like to put in a intel core i3 like my laptop is running, nothing special, just a beginner unit

The only case+psu combination that comes into my mind for near $100 is http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129024

It's an ok case and an ok psu for basic use. I can't for some reason see (edit: they just give me a redirection error I mean) those tigerdirect links at all...

In your budget this Tt case is, it is noisy, but that can be combated. It is also a very dusty case. But it is good smile.gif
