Default Power Supply / Case

Hello
I am planning on building a system in which I'll probably have 5 hard drives. What would be an appropriate power supply and case, so I am not underpowered, and overheated?

What are your complete system specs? I would say minimum of 450watts, from a good manufactorer like Antec depending on your system.

This is sort of the system I am planning:
-main purpose being a home recording studio

Processor: P4 3.2Ghz
Motherboard: ???
Ram: 2 GB Dual Channel
Hard Drives: 5X 80 GB (some kind of raid set up, not sure yet)
Video: Asus 6600GT PCI Express
Sound: Audiophile 2496

This is the basic idea, so far.

Thank-you for your help!

GageMW, maybe around $200 - $250. If I have to spend a bit more for something reliable that won't fry my motherboard, and hard drives (as I have experienced in the past) then I will do so.

That will be perfect for the PSU, for case, it is really your opinion of what you like. Just remember, if you buy a cheap case, it is cheap for a reason, the metal will be thin, and not smoothed, and curved off, and will cut you very easily.
