Just buy $50 see-trough case and a $40 Forton PSU...Antec isn't the only good quality PSU maker.

From what i've heard you need a 500w or above to overclock good but will a 450w handle overclocking an opty 146 to about 2.4 or 2.6 ghz?

Here's a 550W antec psu on rebate for $75:

And pick up some $50 case with a window.

What I did:
I got the Antec Super LanBoy for $30 and an Antec SmartPower 2.0 500W for $50.
