Ive got a ASUS A7S333 motherboard and AMD 2200+ which came today, however... I need a case because the processor wouldn't get enough "breathing" space on my current case because its aligned with the power supply.

I assume I need a Midi tower, but what Wattage? 300W? 400W?

Please help me, thanks.

higher the better

but stick to brand names as cheaper models could cause prblems

Wow. Thanks for the quick reply.

Im after a fairly cheap one, £40 being maximum I want to spend. Has to be fairly solid aswell. Which case would you recommend?

[offtopic]DFX, could you please remove the pic in your sig? It seems that it is hosted by MSN Communities and when my IE tries to load the pic, MSN Communities asks for a password and username.
I doubt that I am the only one that has this problem, so please be so kind to remove it or to host it somewhere else. I have some free space on the webserver of my ISP, so if you need space, just PM me for info.
Thanks in forward.[/offtopic]

Is that why a .net passport thing poped up on my screen?

About the MSN popup, I PM'ed DFX about this thing, so don't flood his PM-box with complaints, I don't think he'll like it...

And I think we all have to excuse to DFX about flooding 'his' thread with these things. Flowers are already sent :D

lol... so that's what that was.

dfx... might wanna go with antec or enermax... they're the 2 top brands and have years of experience. easy to find, too. minimum 350watts, which will leave you headroom for future components.

i'm sure there are other good brands, but those are 2 well-known good brands.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
