Default Case questions

Here is the case I'm thinking about buying: Is this a good brand, and is the PSU good enough for my future (hopefully) system:

CPU- AMD Athlon 64 3000+
Motherboard- Asus KV8 SE Deluxe
Hard Drive- Western Digital WD800JD SATA 80GB
Video Card- GeForce FX 5600
RAM- Kingston 1 GB DDR PC3200
Case- See Above
Optical- Sony CD Burner 52x32x52

Also, how many case fans would that system take? Would I need to buy more?

Yeah, looking it over, that looks like it should be suitable for that system. 3 case fans, excellent cooling.

Looks really cool, ps should be more than enough...But has anyone heard anything about this case? I just get a little cautious about cases that sound too good to be true. I once bought a case because it looked nice, and ended up buying a big, rectangular pop can. The piece of crap had so many dents in it by the time i got rid of it, and also the paint began peeling off. It looks nice but be careful!

raidmax cases are okay i have one just like it and my friend has one. Not the nicest case but they are okay. It depends on the looks you want, you can trust companies like antec and thermaltake, and lian li to put across quality though. Not a bad case for a budget
