Default Nice rig that's good to look at but isn't too expensive

does anyone here know sites that sell rigs that are nice to look at (not one of those that u try to hide under the table, like the one i'm using right now :[ )

maybe something like this:

ok, so i'm asking too much, but yea, you get the oint, (my price range is around $50 with the power supply)

i need somewhere around 420W for my sock939 asus mobo/amd 64 3400+/6600gt

Yeah I wouldn't hide that under the table, I'd hide it in the closet. Calm down its just a joke!

50$ is pretty tight for just a quality psu, so you might want to rethink that.

I would get an Antec case with a 4*0W PSU
Antec's PSU's and cases are both good

The only PSU's going in my next rig will be ANTEC or ENERMAX, atm I prefer Enermax with there 2 min cooling down period.

Sweet case, man. But why aren't you considering a Thermaltake PSU?

I personally think that thing is homely, haha but thats me of course and merely my opinion. I have the X-Dreamer II, I like it, the lights are a little bright. But it was cheap and it got very good reviews for its price. Its a little more than you were saying but its a mid-tower and its nice looking, I get compliments on it pretty frequently. Take a Gander for yourself.

Oh yea, the PSU is ok, its not the greatest I upgraded to the 450W for ten bucks more and it did decent.
