    Hi all,

    I am planning to build my HTPC with following components:

    - socket 939 MB
    - Prescott 3.0 ghz
    - 512 mb DDR RAM
    - PCIE 6600 GT
    - 200 gb HDD
    - DVD-R
    - Leadtek PVR Tv-tuner card
    all in Coolermaster Cavalier 4 case.

    Do you think I will have power-related problems given the fact that the case has 300w no-name proprietary power supply?
    Do you think it will be too hot in the case (occasional gaming)?
    Which case would you recommend me instead (must be hifi component lookalike!)?

    That looks like a good case for the money, there is a PSU calculator here .

    I am running MCE in a shuttle case with a silent-x 250w, with no problems.
    Athlon XP 2700 / 512mb DDR333 / Gigabyte 6600GT / 180gb HDD / 300gb HDD / DVD Rom
