The power supply you have listed will not pull that rig. You need at least a quality 650 power supply (even more is better) to get that one off the ground. I suggest you consider one of these brands/models for your rig:

Seasonic - any model
Corsair - any model
Thermaltake - "Toughpower" series only
Coolermaster - "Real Power Pro" series only
PC Power & Cooling - any model
Silverstone - any model

Sorry, do you mean to get a completely different case or just indicate the people who are building the comp that I want a different PSU.

If you only suggest changing the PSU itself (sorry I'm not an expert), which PSU would you recommend (make & model please).

Thanks again.

That power supply is neither large enough and probably not one of the major brands. The case is fine. Any on that list I made for you is fine. I especially like the Seasonic, Corsair, and "Toughpower" models.

That PSU mentioned in the last post is top notch. I didn't mention that in my personal rigs, I only run Seasonic. Many of my team mates on the Hardware team are also running Seasonics.

They make what I consider the higherst quality supplies on the market and they also make many of the PC Power and Cooling Power Supplies if that tells you about quality.

Cases are kind of personal preference as long as you have adequate ventilation and the right size for your needs.

The one you chose, the Thermaltake Soprano Midi Tower Case is a very nice case.

I also like the Antec Sonata III case, but it doesn't have a window which I suspect you like.

Just pick one you are happy with and if it has decent ventilation and size for your needs, you will be fine.
