Default Help with pc building.

I've got my new 3500+ and new ASUS A8N mobo SLI. Anyway, i need to buy a psu and and a case. Anyone got any suggestions? I'm looking for a case that will give me good cooling, a lot of space as i may add an extra gfx card and even more hard drives etc. I also want a strong, sturdy psu that will supply my components with sufficient power without bottlenecking. Also the psu has to be sli ready, etc. I've seen some Hiper ones and Enermax. The Enermax ones have similar spec to Hiper but seem way more expensive. Can someone clear me up on this topic. I have 150 for a psu and a case. Someone tell me if i'm being realistic.

Thanks,

Amanat

I want one that is SLI compatible and will compliment my system. Making sure it won't bottleneck anything and will be able to run 3 hard drives, 2 gfx cards, a dual core processor.

Actually, when i was looking to build, I was thinking of this case
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811133132

Only problem with that, is that it doesnt have a side airduct.

This is almost the same thing, just a little more technical
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811133154

As for a Psu, ive found these..
480 watts
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817101516

500 watts
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817151024

550 watts
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817103932

600 watts
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817159055

I highly suggest a Thermaltake tower. They are great, have great cable mangment, and are made well. For a psu, look for something sli certified that is around 500,550, 600 Watts. Antec towers are good too.

i think this is the best psu fo sli for the money: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817103931
