I think I'm going to go with that 400W Antec case. I really like the way it looks as well. Thank you all for your help.

Most cases (not all) lower their cost by providing a micky mouse $19 PSU with the case.... which fools buyers into thinking they are getting a great deal on a $60 case with a 400watt PSU.
Well, no offense to you but you DONT stick with the stock psu on any case. Always get your own. I own that case and the psu sucks but with a different one it is a nice case.
