Default PSU and case question

The power supply in my parent's backup computer that I built for them in '97 just went again. I know cheap PS don't last but when I get them free I don't complain. I'm tired of going over there and switching them out though. So what's a good ATX PSU to get and how much would it cost.

I'm thinking of switching out the case as well because it's hard to work in.

Any good ideas for an ATX case for this setup?
Here's the current specs on their computer

Asus P5A board (works great except the USB has never worked)
AMD K6-3 400
384MB of Ram
WD 5400rpm 40 GB hard drive
Voodoo 3 3500 graphics card with 16MB ram
Win 98SE

Hmmm...http://www.newegg.com/app/manufact.asp?catalog=7&DEPA=1

I dont know if your parents want fancy schnanzy cases or what so you will have to look for your self there. Although most come with a good PSU and will last long....or it might not.

It's not them who really care about a new case it's me. Actually my brother just donated me his old Antec case but it has no power supply.

So I guess I'll be looking for a Thermaltake, Antec or enermax PSU then
