It's all the basicly the same though and those are relativly well known names, Raidmax especially.......

You won't see better performance with more power or a better brand....All you need is lots of power and stability and stability cna be found in any good decent power supply

THIS is the case I own. It's very nice and I have never had a problem with it.....Before I bought it I used a site to measure how much my components would need and it was only like 385watts, so I have plenty to spare......


I wouldn't not buy an Aspire case, just because you assume their PSU's aren't top notch And if your gonna buy a case without a PSU, then you are gonna need atleast 420 watts. Look around at the price and see what you think works best for your budget

Of those you listed this is the best one......This

The only thing I don't see is that it has no fan on top.....But it does have the 2 in rear to dispell air, 1 on the side blowing onto the GFX card and mobo and then 1 in front moving air rearward towards the back fans..... Mine has a fan on top to move heat from away from the PSU, cables, HD's and the CPU and into the flow of the front fans to blow it rearward and out of the case.......

this is the case i was originally going to get

http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProduc...144-069&depa=1

but now that i look at it, i dont like how the front looks

these raidmax cases are practically the same thing, except the front doesnt look as plain and its alot cheaper

this one has 2 fans
http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...156-137&depa=1

this has 3
http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...156-142&depa=1

since there cheaper i can get some lights or something

dang its just that i dont like how the door swings to the right, im used to having my computer to the left of my monitor, and if i get the raidmax it will be uncomfortable since to access my cd drives i have to swing the door into the monitor haha

i guess then the x-infinity or x-dreamer 2
