Don't trust the psu's that come with the cases. They are usually cheap and faulty. If your psu goes, it may take other components with it (ie graphics card, motherboard, ect.). Good psu companies are froton, seasonic, thermaltake, hiper, (just listing as many names off my head, don't know what's available in Australia).

Just echo. I lost a hard drive when putting it in a friends PC that had a crappy PSU. Took out a cathode and the PSU itself as well.
