the OCZ 700w psu isnt your best option however, although it may be cheap, its not the best selection you have.

No, its because that specific psu is overrated, its only rated at 550w on the 12v rails. Not the worst option, but certainly not the best either.

Yeah I know, I just figured I would point that out, seems a bit silly to me.

hmmmm well ... I have a Corsair TX750W ... I could give my psu to my brother and get an upgrade I guess ... or get an AX750 for him cause he's gonna have a smaller case so modular = win

But that would add $$ >.> i kinda wanna get things cheaper lol

Is there any other good gaming case, possibly with side window, bottom mounted PSU and good cable management features ? I thought of the Antec 900 but not sure ...

This case appears to have good cable management, a side panel window, and bottom psu.

This case also has good cable management and a bottom mounted psu, but lacks the side window.

This case also lacks the side window, but has good cable management and bottom mounted psu.

Another NZXT case that has all three

On a side note, the antec 900 is a great case, however it lacks cable management that will allow you to secure cables behind the motheboard tray.

All of the NZXT cases seem to be fairly well constructed, if thats what he likes, get it
