I own the Raidmax Sagitta. It's an awesome case, and has the ability to power intel motherboards and AMD motherboards. So, either way you're good to go.

Will the raidmax case require more fans or is it good to go, as is? Can it keep my components relatively cool?

That cool master looks might nice too. Only thing is it doesn't have a PS..

for your budget pc; it will be great cooling.. if you ever plan to keep upgrading to improve your computer, and then decide to overclock a bit, you might need to buy one more fan. But for the hardware you are planning to get, this is more than enough cooling.

I am currently running PentiumD 820, which are very hot cpus and this case handles it fine.

Is installing new fans any hard?

I have personally never installed a new fan before, but from what i've read, it seems to be just screwing the fan inplace, and attaching the connector to the power supply; someone correct me if I'm wrong

You would be correct, it's really easy. Just make sure you get the same size fan that you have a vent for- or you'll be wondering what is wrong

i highly recommend the antec sonata case, its really cheap and has a 450 watts power supply the best looking thing you're going to get for that price range too, here it is:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811129155
also if you're usage is based on burning cds and listening to music id devote my money to three things: cpu, sound card, cd-writer.
the sound card i chose for you was:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16829102175 its for $72 but you wont really enjoy music as much with speakers on a $27 sound card.
the cd/dvd writer i chose was the sony $60, its an amazing deal
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827131261

i normally recomend amd, but for stuff like this intel is not a bad option at all, so id definetely look at both sides. socket 478 in intel and socket 939 in amd if you can.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'll probably get the soundcard after I know everything will boot up nice and proper.

I've seen some really nice computer cases but they're around 140 and don't have a power supply. But I hear PS aren't that hard to install so those options are viable.

HAHA! That is my case! I love how it looks! It looks really cool once you get all the lights running up to it too... Contrary to TRD's opinion . It keeps everything really cool although it is just a tad too loud. It isn't unbearable, though.

I didn't even try the PSU, though, I just put in my Aspire and everything worked great, so I can't really comment on that. Sorry!

EDIT: Oh, dang! I definitely didn't see the second page! I have the XION case, that is! Also, this PSU comes with a 24 pin power cord! It does NOT come with a 20 pin!
