As posted earlier, I wouldn't use the powersupplies included with the cases, unless I had to.

I would actually pick number two; it has two intake fans in the back and a side fan, and doesn't look as plasticy as the first in my opinion.

As me and Chris have said, we both have cut our self in that case. I only had a small slice in my little finger when looking inside it at my local PC shop. If I had to build a PC with it, I would be scared of getting blood over the pc.
