Does the cash support normal ATX PSUs? I really don't know how big this thing is...

Also, do you have any pics of your setup Fishie?
Trust me I looked into another PSU also but I doubt it's going to happen. The reason is that the PSU can be no deeper than 5.25 inches... and the smallest I have found was 5.5inches. (see last picture in my gallery) So you can see that with the included 4.75inch PSU there is barely any room left.

how much better than 16 pipelines and 980 MHz do you want? i dont really know specs of 7800, maybe you could show me how much better it is than X800 XT
but you can get a X1800 (better than a 7800 i think) anyway mem clock is 1500 MHz stock, 1800 MHz stable i heard, cant get any faster than that in 2006

Read Here

Skip to page 11-20 to see benchmarks. As you can see it doubles the performance of a x1600 and almost on par with the x1800 (usually about 10-15fps difference on 1280x1024 res. which is what i play on) However the x1800 is $300 wheres the 7600gt is 190$

Okay I ordered some parts:

Aspire X-Qpack
X2 3800+
16x DVD+-RW with Lightscribe
16x DVDROM
200GB SATA II HD
Biostar Tforce 6100
Nvidia 7600GT
Windows MCE 2005

I still need to decide on memory and a tuner before I order it. I will keep you all updated. I also have to figure out this PSU problem because I don't think the Aspire one that comes with the case will support all this stuff very well. When I get everything up and running I will check Everest to get my voltages and see if it is stable enough and then decide if I need to get a different one. I may also need to mod a way to fit it.

About the PSU... the only thing really blocking it is the CD drive. So if you can somehow not use one or find a smaller one then that's extra room for a PSU.

Yea I was thinking maybe an external drive, or someone mount the PSU in a different spot, I will have to take a look at it when it arrives.

Thanks

Actually, many with qpacks run reg length psu's. You just need a short drive like a lite on. I can show pics if wanted

Well my drives are both lite on and there is a few inches room between the PSU and the drives, I will post a few pics tomorrow as I am really tired right now, thanks for the info.

Leme know how that works out Zero, because I'm planning on building a multi-media PC/Gaming PC for a friend of mine.

Ok, to add on to some above posts, this case is great! I have a lot of the same set up as you, so if you have any Qs for me, let me know.
I have a Zalman7000 and it fits perfectly, not to mention it is suuuper easy to mount on the biostar board.
The case doesnt seem all that flimsy, yeah the metal is thinner, but it is meant to be portable. The handle feels wimpy, but can hold up my whole case no problem.
Also, I have the stock PSU and a Liteon drive and you can see there is plenty of room for a larger PSU.
