Default new build: case = ultra gladiator mid-tower case

These ultra cases look real nice and have very good reviews and a good price. http://www.ultraproducts.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2617303&CatId=1509 What do you think?

I'm looking for a good power supply, 500 watt max, $50 max!!
Most of these PS on this page

ya it works, but I wouldn't limit yourself on the power supply like that... my personal minimum is 650watts and that would be only if I knew I was not installing a lot of stuff and only one GPU.
If you plan on getting a high end GPU get at least a 750... two GPU's get a 900. Remember the PSU will only draw as much power as it needs so if you get a 1000 watt that is 80+ certified (say bronze) and your system needs 500 watts at full load, then the PSU will only draw about 590 watts.

Corsair, Antec, Thermaltake, Rosewill are all good names in power supplies, and the higher the grade on the 80+ certification you go the less power is wasted (bronze/ silver/ gold/ platinum being in the upper 90's of efficiency but really expensive)

STAY AWAY FROM COOLMAX PSUs!! I had one and learned the hard way when it went 4th of july on me for about 4 seconds ... lit up my whole bedroom, thankfully my motherboard survived the event.
