Default stock case psu

hey guys, i am build a system fo rmy friend, with a really tight budget. bit much of a gamer. so i need a case that comes with a psu which would perform decent. he plans to run a 3600+ x2 sytem on it with a 7900gt. i was wondering if these case with their stock psu woule be good
i know its very unsafe to use a stock psu but he has very low budget, of like 350$-400$
thanks

None of the above are good. Don't skimp on the PSU unless your friend wants to chance being out of an entire system. None will last very long.

sounds like he needs a dose of the computer bible.

"3. Thou shall not skimp on thy power supply."

reading this makes me proud

Agreed with the others on the power supply. Unless he wants to risk having his whole system go down, because of a faulty power supply.

And if he's on a tight budget, he should go for the 7900GS and overclock it to 7900GT speeds.

This is a very reliable and solid PSU. I have this exact model, and it's been running for 2 years straight. Should run that system, no problem.
