    2 Questions

    First one: I need to get a Power and a Reset Switches for an ATX case, where can i find them, i have looked in quite a bit of places and i cant find any. Anyone know??

    Second, i was thinking about getting the Enlight 7237 http://www.************.com/cases/enlight_7237.htm ...But there is no place for a fan in the back for exhaust. So i was wondering if anyone had this case, and if so how did they mod it to fit the fan? I was thinking just a blow hole in the back would work, but i wanted others opinions.
    Thanks

    Try Radio Shack for the ATX switch.

    My 7237 has a place for a rear fan just under the PS. I have one there.

    --I might be wrong, but judging from the picture, it doesnt look like it has a spot...

    No it does not. To make it worse the sheet metal in back is not flat. You can probably only fir a 60mm fan next to the I/O sheild. Anything larger would require a pretty messy cut. I'd look for a differant case if you can. Otherwise a blowq hole can be cut in the top (just in front of the PS) or in the side (directly across from the CPU).

    I'd personally get a differant case. My al time faforite mid range case is this (yes you've all heard it befor):

    It has a really good layout and comes with an AMD approved 250w PS for only $67. Lots of good features.

    This is the case I just bought except I got a 300watt power supply instead of the 250 watt one.

    Mine kinda looks like the big brother of the one Todd a showed above.

    Tomschaft-

    The back of mine is different than your pic. Under the cutout for the PS fan is another cutout for a second fan. When I ordered mine I ask for an additional fan. My invoice still says Enlight 7237 but now I don't know.

    Either of those cases would be great, normaly I would spend more money in something like this. But the thing is i dont have the money right now, i might just wait until i have the money, but i really dont want to
    I cant find a decent case with a 300wtt ps in it for around 50 bucks, like 70 shipped.
    Thanks for the help. Ill look and see if Onvia has that case. Would I really need a 300wtt ps? I mean it would be nice for future upgrades. I wont have anything special in my case, maybe except a cd-rw and like 2 or 3 case fans in there(plus the usual), would 250 wtt be enough? Or should i go ahead and get a 300?
    Thanks
