Yeah most PSUs that come with cases are junk. Just read the PSU guide that's stickied. As for cases, I love my 900. It keeps your components very cold. Mine is a little unique tho...

This case is a mid tower but actually has alot of room to work with. I wouldn't trust the power supply it comes with.
