I can stand on top of the one I just put together with that Rosewill case.. and I'm about 155lbs.. I would not recommend standing on pc cases but it was just something that couldn't be avoided. Also, very stable voltages on that 350W, its less than you'd need for some better parts but it suits a basic system perfectly.

Awesome! Thanks for the help. Now I just have to take the prices to dear old (young) mommy and pray.

If you want gaming get the Core 2 Duo E6300/E6400 atleat an ATI X1650Pro, and 1-2GB of RAM and you will be pleased.

Yeah, but my sisters don't give a damn about gaming. I might suggest a graphics upgrade to them eventually in case they want to play the sims or something but for now, they'll be happy with a computer that can run WinXP and some programs decently (right now the "family computer" is a Celeron 566MHz with 384MB RAM and a 10GB HDD. Ugh.)
