Default Would it be a good case for this?

I'm planning on getting AMD Athlon 64 3000+, Nvidia 6600 256mb RAM PCIx, 2GB RAM, and DVD burner. I was told that I need a power supply of at least 400w for the power supply.

What do think about the Maxtop Hunter CSX-501?

How many slots would I need for this setup? I would like to be able to upgrade. I'm wanting to spend between $40-80.

Some advice. Spend 20 dollars extra and get the 128 mb 6600 Gt. It is way better than the 6600 alone. ALso, most cases have room for the standard amound of expansion slots, so you don't have to worry. It's the motherboard that determines upgradability the most.

Thank you for your suggestion. Will 400w PSU be enough?
