Question Few Questions.......

K, im new here (if u hadent already guessed).

Im going to build a low buget Gaming PC to replace my laptop.

I dont have much knowage on PC harware and the most i have ever done in building PCs is changeing the graphics card and the sound card on one. So im a Noob.

Rite. First of all,

Is this case worth the price of £75 ($130 USD)


I like the design, its cooling seems to be alrite and it a big case so no space problems but i seems kinda expensive compaired with the ones i was looking at befor considering it has no PSU.

Are all PSUs the same size (as in lenght, depth etc.) and how much should i be paying for sumin about 500W?


Which would you recomend, PCI-E graphics cards or AGP?

I have had mixed answers from people for this


How much should i be spending on a motherbord?

Thanx for the help, and if your wondering why my spelling is ****, its cus im dislexic.

I'd look around before decideing on this case, I found this at newegg...


not all PSU's are the same size, but for this case you would want it to be an atx form factor...

and PCI-E is more powerfull

and as for the motherboard, I'm not sure...

For PSUs, brand name matters a lot. If you want a really nice 500watt PSU that is guaranteed not to fail, look to be spending $100 and upwards. If you are starting a new build today, definitly go with PCIE. As for a mobo, depends how good a mobo you want. The DFI Lanparty nForce4 Ultra-D costs about $130 from newegg. Thats a great price for the best non SLI mobo around

-AMD Athlon 64 3200+ Winchestor
-MSI K8N Neo4-F
-Sapphire Radeon X850 XT
-2x 1024 Corsair XMS Pro
