What are you talking about?

Ultra makes unreliable PSU's. Antec is a trusted name in power supplies.

I love my Aspire X-Cruiser case for $60...sweet lookin unit.
Don't get a case with a powersupply built in unless it's
a brand name you recognize/like/are willing to live with.
My case has 5 fans, not counting 2 in the PSU and one on the
CPU. Airflow? great. =)
just my .02 worth of free advice.

I'd get a cheaper case, and spend a bit more on the PSU (separately)

I got the Cooler Master Centurion 5, its a pretty good case, but it gets realy dusty easily too. So you gotta clean the front alot.
