    Cases

    I'm planning to build my own pc and overclock it. I'm thinking of Duron 600 with an Abit KT-7. I 'm wondering if it is necessary to get a case with AMD approved power supply? Does any of you have any recommendation for cases (the cheaper, the better).

    Thanks.

    Get the Enlight 7237 with a 300-watt AMD Approved PSU. It sales for about $45 to $50 on pricewatch.

    It's a great case, I got it myslef.

    I would stick with the 300watt power supply other than that you should be fine. Well here is my favorite case.
    http://www.directron.com/blacmidatxca.html

    Its not the cheapest but, its great, removable Mother board try, excellent cooling, and it looks cool too. This is the only case I will ever buy again they are just so easy to work with, it worth a couple extra bucks. Uh if you get this one by some chance, don't select the upgrade to 300watt ps, they f*ck you if you do that. Just get the 230w ps and buy another 300w ps its actually cheaper than just getting the 300w and you will have two instead of one (I have no idea what you would use the 230 for but wtf it will essentially be free).

    Since price is a factor, I second the motion on the Enlight EN7237.

    Fantus, I've seen some excellent reviews of the Globalwin 802 case. I don't have one, but after reading this review, I am seriously considering getting one.

    Here's the link: http://www.thetechzone.com/reviews/case/globalwin802/

    Good luck
