    with most cases that come with PSUs, the power supply is probably not very good....I'd order a power supply seperately.

    this post is guaranteed 100% parrot-free

    What color do you want bigdawg.

    Any other preferences you would like? Front USB, 20 million 5.25 drives, you know, some things to narrow it down.

    Well I was wanting a blue cathode in it and I think Silver is my favorite choice in colors. WOW those new Chieftec Dragon Glossy Series cases look NICE..that black one is gorgeous..anyways. I want to get that silver one cuz it comes with a nice FREE500watt PSU..I only will need like a place for 2 HDD and 2optical drives..but i think most cases come with 4 slots for HDD and you can take 2 of them out.

    Not too sure about the included PSU's though, tend to be crappy generic ones but you never know, is there anywehre you can get the case without the PSU and buy a decent seperate one?

    edit: typo

    Yeah but the PSU by itself cost $70 so I'm thinking its a pretty good one...

    Ultra 500Watt PSU with 2 80mm Fans Theres the link to the PSU..it cost 75 bux..so I think it is pretty nice.
