I'm building a new PC, and want to make sure that this case will work. LINK.

Hardware that I am using...

Inter Core 2 Duo E4300 Socket 775 Processor
Asus P5B-VM Inter G965 Express Motherboard
2GB A-DATA DDR2-800 DC Memory Kit
250GB WD SATA 3.0GB/s HDD
NEC 18x DVD+/-RW Burner
3.5" FDD
10/100 TCP/IP Network Card

The case that was reccomended is a In Win IW-BT610T MicroATX Case w/240W PSU. I wanted to swap it because it looks ugly, and reminds me of the school PC's which I have had some pretty painful experiences on...

Also... Is this build a good deal for about $600?

EDIT: Also, would I want to swap out the Intel for an AMD Processor?

Don't use the stock power supply. You're better off to buy a good one

Can someone suggest a better PSU, since whenever I buy a "recommended" thing on the internet, it always craps out on me 5 days later? :thumbsup:

EDIT: Also, would this be good for the case instead? I can afford a few bucks extra if it has a nice PSU.

The power supply that is contained in this one is excellent.
The name says it all -- 59 and holding permanently

I've heard that, too, Sneakycyber.

Especially the blue ones!
