PC case help needed

  Newuser2 15:13 17 Apr 2004

I am going to biuld a new PC & I've seen a case that I like in a local computer shop, trouble is they didn't have any details on it.
The case was apparantly made by DIGITAL & was white a dark silver with a flip up fan outlet on the top of the case. The case comes with a 350 watt PSU but I'm not sure if its OK for an AMD CPU.
Has anyone any info on the manufacturer as I need to check on the PSU before I buy one.

as far as the Athlon is concerned.

A 350watt PSU will power an Athlon CPU ok and should be ok for a standard build. Ask in the shop you are buying from and if they cant tell you I would,nt buy from them as they should know.

Thanks for your reply FE.
Next question is will the PSU connections be OK for an AMD CPU on an ASUS K8V MBO.

If the case is an ATX which I would suppose it would be then the connections are all standard and will fit the M/B OK

Sorry one & all I should have said its an AMD 64 CPU I'm thinking of getting possible the 3200 or even a 3400 when the price drops a bit.

I think as said that as long as your M/B takes the CPU then the case should be fine but others may have more experience of this than me.

Thanks one & all. I've just spoken to the owner of the shop & he is going to swop the 350 watt PSU over to a 450 watt PSU.
He's also said the connections are universal these days so they will fit any MBO/CPU.
