Default Cooler Master case question

I am thinking of purchasing this case:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811119082
But it only a 380W Psu. Will this be able to power my 3200+AMD 939 system with a 6600gt?
Thank you

You're pretty much pushing the limits with that PSU if you get it. Right now i have a 300W PSU and i know i'm maxing it out because i've been having random restarts and stuff. I'm getting a new case and PSU very soon so that shouldn't be an issue anymore. I believe you should get the case separately and then buy a quality PSU. That way you'll be set for the future and won't have to worry about problems :P.

Case PSUs suck noob a$$. An aftermarket PSU is a must for a new system.

This is what you need.

Wait you have the Thermaltake Xaser and you're getting a new case?

I would reccomend the Centurion 5 case for $45 and FSP Group (Fortron Source) 450W PSU for $50 if you are on a sub-$100 budget. If you can spend more than spend it on a nice PSU.

You say, "I don't want a different case" and then ask if you should go out and buy this other case. I'm confused.

It's the same case, other than the powersupply.
