The Antecs which come with cases arent as good as the Antec's you buy seperatly. As far as I remeber, that one has about 18A on the +12v rails which is the minimum I am recommending for new builds.
It should be fine, as long as youre not planning on stacking a load of hard disks in there, filling every PCI slot and overlocking the thing to hell.

what was wrong with the last one?
Nothing in it merits the price tag. Lack of upgradability as well. The Athlon 64-based machine is also likely to be much lighter on electricity usage and run cooler, thus lasting longer. Not only that, I've selected a high quality Samsung TFT to go with it, whereas the P4 system has no detail about the TFT that is included...
Hi guys, I posted this in the Cambridge forum and was told I should post here as well so here goes,
I'm looking to buy a potrtable computer for lecture notes and essays and basically I've a list of questions I'd like to ask, any advice greatly appreciated!
1. Where is the best place to get one and why?
2. How much memory should I get? What are the basic requirements? What budget should I be looking at?
edit: should I move this post to the laptop thread in the subforum?
but 2 things i need to know. Are these new computers compatible with a standard IDE HDD ? and also can anyone see or know what rating the PSU on the cases are and the minimum for running the 3800+ AMD64 with a 7600gt gfx card?
