Thanks for the advice.
No optical drive being installed:
Here is what I have:
Asrock H61 Micro ATX US3S + 8GB Mushkin or Crucial (i forgot which is in there now) 1600mhz DRR3 + G630CPU and stock Intel cooler.
I also have a 120GB SSD I picked up for $50 on black Friday.
I own and currently use a Coolermaster cheapo PSU 460watt. I paid $15 for it.
I could keep using that cheap PSU in my server but I been shopping for a better Seasonic Variant around 600 watts, and if I pull the trigger it frees that one up. Otherwise I have a couple others in basement I would have to look, or just buy a NEO or MKIII or something for $30. Any idea the size of the PSU that works?
I might wait to get the case if I do before I buy. I have to have this done for Xmas. It's a gift for my brother and his wife. I like how the Silverstone looks and I know it would fit on the shelf in his living room with his bluray and surround receiver.
You think that case would work for me? Or have another affordable suggestion ???
I am trying to make this a cheap as possible- We have an agreement we won't spend more than $100 per couple between my wife and I and my brother and sister in law. I'm going to go over but I am trying to manage best I can.
I just really think they would enjoy it. They are constantly asking about mine.
