    Hey Fo,

    I'm in the market for a new case. Most of the cool ones I seen come with 300 Watt power supplys. Do I really NEED more than a 300 watt based on my system specs below? Does anyone know of a really sweet black Mid-tower ATX case that they recommend for less than 150 bones? Also, I'm seeking recommendations for motherboards. I know this is an AMD shop, but I'm not ready to throw away my 2.2 GHz P4 just because it's fasionable to do so. As such, I need recommendations for a P4 board.

    Many Thanks,

    Wrath

    For a motherboard for the P4 2.2, I would suggest the MSI 845 Ultra. I have been using one with a P4 2.0 and had no probs with it at all.

    I have just upgraded to a P4 2.4B and had to buy a new board to run the 533FSB, so I went for the MSI 845E Max2.

    Or Gigabyte is another good brand that I have used over the years.
