I have a powmax spinoff. They use the exact same pieces under another name... I can't remember. I threw away the power supply that came with it that had the company name on it. They're... okay I guess. I'm not terribly impressed about how sturdy the case is. I would pass on it. The side of that thing is the exact same design I have in my window, except I have a silver case.

dude on ebay they always lower the price of the item so that way they can make it lok cheaper by making the shipping higher. It is a scam. I would rather have them say $45 and the 44.99 shipping. you are going to pay the same either way. I am with funk use www.newegg.com they have really good cases and they are cheap. the shipping is $15.99 though. Still, ithey do have good deals. I saw this one case at my local computer store for $70 and at newegg they were selling it for like $43. Even with the shipping and tax and everything it still came out to only $60.
New build in progress, but this is what I got for now:
-AMD x2 5200+
-Asus M3A78-EM AM2+
-Buffalo 2x1gb ddr2 800
