Anyway, i have it between these 3 (2 are same, but one comes with psu and one doesnt)
Ultra Aluminus w/o PSU
Ultra Aluminus w/ 750 watt modular PSU
NZXT Trinity w/ 400w psu
Why i'm looking at the different ones, and my pro's/con's of them:
1. Case has awesome reviews, video looks like it would be an easy and fun "rebuild", Doesnt come with a psu at the price, but i have a 700w one already, and the door apparently gets in the way when using a non all digital fan controller.
2. Same case as 1, but comes with a 750watt modular PSU that has gotten great reviews from other sites, and was just released on the 28th iirc of january. Little more expensive but i would be able to sell my 700 watt psu to almost make up the difference.
3. Looks IMO a lot better then the Ultra, but it is missing from what i can tell, a front access USB/audio/firewire. Not as cable friendly and apparently can have issues with longer vid cards.
Which one would you get? while the NZXT looks great, the ultra just seems like a more logical choice.
I'm building a computer for a customer through work (he actually showed me the Aluminus case, i personally dont like tigerdirect/compusa.com) and just wondering if the 750 watt PSU will be enough. The max amp's on the dual rails seems like a decent amount (24 iirc) but i just want a 2nd opinion. Here are the parts (no joke):
