    There are only 3 rules to successful overclocking. Unfortunately no one knows what they are.

    That ANTEC sounds good. 300W PS is just right. Where did you find it? How much, etc...

    I got mine at http://www.techstore.com/ts/default.asp for $48!

    The nice thing is that it comes with a smart power supply. Use Promotion code 154P to get the low price. I think they're out of stock now.

    You can go to Pricewatch and do a seach for KS282 for other retailers.

    i really have to say that those Antec 300w PS are the best!!!

    I got an AOpen HX45 midtower case and modified the hell out of it... it's a pretty good deal for $32 (course you DO have to buy a different power supply -- it came w/ an Antec 250 -- i just don't feel safe w/ anything less than 300 )

    The best case I've seen is this case from addtronics. It's what I have and Laoche recomended it to me.



    You can get it at www.addtronics.com

    Those Addtronics are very nice. But I like the smaller 6896A. I seriously considered buying it but I could've got 2 Antec 300W for that price.

    Maybe next time.
