Jan 30, 2010
Hi all!

i'm looking for a case which doesn't have to be fancy and colorful but i want it to quieten down the noise (the cheapest the best!) and good power supply that may surely handle my setup:

Intel i5 750 2.66GHz LGA1156 Processor

Asus P7P55D Deluxe LGA1156

MSI Radeon 5870

OCZ Memory 4GB (2x2048MB) Reaper HPC Edition DDR3 PC3-12800 1600 MHz RAM Dual Channel 7-7-7-24

WD Caviar Black 640GB 32MB cache (i'm gonna buy one more disc soon)

i live in UK so i would love to have the recommandations available within uk!
The Corsair VX 550 watt power supply mentioned by ulysses35 would be an appropriate choice for a pc system with one ATI Radeon HD 5870 video card. Corsair has a reputation for high quality psu's. They consistently earn high marks in technical reviews. They are stable, reliable, and come with a 5 year warranty.

The determining factor for case selection will be the ATI Radeon HD 5870 video card. The card is 11 inches long. Add a little more for the power cables. That pretty much rules out most mid-tower cases.

The new Lian Li / Lancool Dragon Lord cases have 11.417 inches of space between the hard drive cage in the bottom front of the case and the rear panel. Ventilation, airflow, and cooling are excellent. The cases are available in a variety of configurations and prices:
