Hi,

I'm looking to upgrade my computer (giving old one to a friend). I wonder what your opinions are on the case. Here are my two choices:
1.) Antec PLUS1080AMG (SOHO File Server) w/ 430W PSU - $169 CDN

2.) Thermaltake V1000A Xaser III (Black) Tower w/ TT-420W - $260 CDN
http://www.thermaltake.com/xaserCase/xaser3/v1000a.htm

I'm looking to upgrade to a P4 3.0E or something similar (Intel though). I'm concerned about temps and PSU. Will probably overclock the CPU and Video as much as possible.

Thanks to all who reply.

Ok, I'll stick with the Antec. It does come with the following PSU:
1 430 Watt ATX TruePower (True 430) - installed

Is there really a need to upgrade the PSU?

Correct me if i'm wrong, but isn't that Antec just a rebadged Chieftec Dragon?

I love Chieftec cases, they are dirt cheap, have loads of accessories and are bomb proof too.

WOW. You could be right. I was just looking at a Chieftec Dragon case. Both cases look very similar.
