listing the case would be a good idea

antec 300 is one of the top $50ish cases imo.

and do not want to use a psu that comes with a case in most cases

you can install a window on the sidepanel if you wish to make it look better.

if that is the type of case you like, that's cool, but usually PSU's that come with a case are crappy at best. In this case, (pardon the pun) I would save and get a good power supply and case separately. I personally would go with a Coolermaster case, (good cases, and decently priced around 50.00) then a psu that will handle your power needs, depending on the GPU, CPU, etc...
