how come the true power psu is better?

yea so, if i get the truepower psu, then ill get a differnt case...one for about 40-50£ (80$)

i may overclock the ram, so i may just go with the standard crucial or something

EDIT thse ar the cases which i like
http://www.microdirect.co.uk/Product...0&GroupID=1397
http://www.microdirect.co.uk/Product...2&GroupID=1397
http://www.xcase.co.uk/acatalog/Compucase_6920.html

well that sort of design black and subtle, so if you got any recomendtions?

or a case for up to 100£ ($180) with a decent psu?

ATX and BTX are standards for case sizes. If your mobo is BTX it would be to large/small (I don't know) and would not fit in your case.
