I don't see any power supply listed. That case has 5 fans. You don't need 5 fans.

To add to OtheHill's comments, the case you selected has a bottom-mount power supply. I suggest you read this:

The Problem of Bottom-Mounted Power

And if you're in the US or Canada, I suggest you get on Newegg's email list so that you can take advantage of their specials.

Latest Email Specials

Also, check out (aka eWiz). They're currently running a 15% off special (up to $15) using the code, PADDY15.

Your power supply info is basically useless. We need a make/model.

You should also consider a Samsung Spinpoint hard drive.

"That case has 5 fans. You don't need 5 fans. "

"CPU: A79-1955 ::AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition AM3 CPU HDZ955FBGMBOX "

In my experience the heat sink / cpu fan combo that comes with the cpu in the AMD boxed set is very good and the cpu never gets too hot.

Don't run more case fans than you need. Too many will just suck more dust and lint into the case interior and you will need to clean that off more often. If installing, or running an already installed, case fan or an additional case fan does not significantly lower the cpu temp or the temp inside the case (e.g. mboard temp) shown in the bios Setup, you don't need it.

If you have a desktop case near or on a floor that has wall to wall carpeting, the dust and lint will collect a lot faster.

This is a much better psu for around the same money.

Did you not read the replies above. Again you are choosing a case with a bottom mounted power supply. These are not good. mick provided links about that. Did you read them?

I am not impressed with the power supply either. Any manufacturer that will not print the actual specs of their product must not want you to know them.

Go to for a better supplier in Canada.

"Go to for a better supplier in Canada." has no physical infrastructure in Canada. It's merely a web site that conforms to Canadian requirements.The products are all shipped from the US.

They have a special shipping arrangement that results in it not costing much if any different than if they were shipping from Canada, and no "customs" delay where you wait as much as week while "customs" processes it and charges you an extra fee. on the other hand does have some physical infrastructure in Canada., including big box stores, in Ontario, although they do ship some things from the US for no additional charge or "customs" fee

I don't know why some who answer here have something against TigerDirect. I haven't had any problems ordering things from, and you can often find the same things as newegg sells on their web site.
