    Thats about the best anyone could do from a reputable supplier. A PC Power and Cooling P/S would sweeeten it a bit. ;) Its amazing though, that what was considered a budget price point for a bare bone Celeron system, not too long ago, is now buying a five hard drive, RAID smokin, P4 workaholic workstation. :cool:

    Pretty much...I was thinking of swithcing out the PSU for an Enermax but to be honest the PSU that comes with those cases are pretty damn quiet as is and are nice as well...forget the model of the PSU..Jetoney can testify that the PSU that comes with that case is indeed quieter than the Enermax believe it or not!!
    If all goes well I think I might be getting this system within a month...the new and improved Anus I'll be calling it!!! :D

    Isn't 300W a bit wimpy for a power supply considering all those drives that'll be feeding off it, plus we've kinda got a sneakin' suspicion that you might be thinking about attempting to overclock it too?

    I'd want at least around 400W if I was gonna hang 5 hard drives plus a CD burner off of it.

    Antec has a new line of PS's out called the "True" series, looks like they intend to compete with Enermax. The specs of the True430 look pretty good, and it has two fans in it. The Antec PLUS1080 full tower case comes with one included... a very nice looking case.

    Ya know Nick...damn good point! Sometimes I get the itchy trigger finger! lol
    I'm sure that an extra 60 some odd smackaroos wont be such a bad thing considering the overall price of the system as is!!!
    400-450Watt PSU coming up!! :D

    Naw... you just need to build one of these units. And get an LCD monitor.
