On A Budget

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi, i was wondering if you guys could come up w/ a nice looking case, of fair quality, for say around £50-60 that also has a power supply of 450-500Watts...
or a case and PSU separately to match the total price of £50-60.
Thanks for you time.
I look forward to reading the replies

Oh, the stuff to go inside, isn't too much, (but would like to have some room) a Micro ATX Mother Board, DVD drive and a 3.5 sata HD, oh! and a graphics card later.
My thanks again.

just a quick note, I went looking myself, and found something on ebuyer, and wondered what your thoughts would be, or if there might be something better.
coolermaster elite 430, w/ 500watt psu at £58.19.
I know that some say about cable management, but am not too worrried at this point.

This seems to fit the bill:

Comes with a PSU, not the best, but should get the job done.

More reviews of the case at Newegg.

No problem! You may want to invest in a couple of 120mm fans for extra cooling. One on the bottom to intake fresh air and one of the rear to exhaust, in addition to the single front 120mm.

Usually a tower style cooler is optimal when orientated to force air to the rear of the case, right where you'll place a fan
