Post Question on cases.

Alright. I found a very nice case. It displays internal temp and everything on an LCD. Very nice. Anyways, i plan on getting a AMD 3200 939 and a MSI mobo. Now, this thingie, (case) says that it is "standard P4 case". Does this mean it can only run P4, or ,well, anything?

Thanks for the help.


Heres the link by the way

you are fine. your board and cpu will run fine in it. Now does it come with a power supply? If it does, make sure that the mobo connector will work with your board

i think new PSUs are out with these 24 pin connectors , and soemtimes you have got a mobo with 20 pins.


i think there is a way to leave some of the pins hanging, so you could potentially make the 24 pin connector of the PSU work with your 20 ping mobo, a bit tricky though

You need a 24pin ATX 2.0 cord. Most of them still have 20 pin ATX 1.3

the old PSUs had a 20 pin power connector, the new oens have 24 pin connectors,

while most of the mobos(dont know if the new ones have 24 pin power connectors) have 20 pin connectors


that is the issue we are discussing

And when you get a PSU, be sure to get it from a brand name. Only get it from Antec, Thermaltake, OCZ, Ennermax, or PCP&C.


I would recommend either the OCZ Modstream 510 watts or the OCZ Powerstream 520 watts

Alright. Will a 400W PSU do me good for a 6800GT PCIE?
