Aopen KF45 Case w/ 250W PSU
For many of you, your computer, it's case, and the modifications you have performed
are items of pride. However, there comes a time for many when you begin to build
another computer, upgrade your system, or run out of space inside your case.
The case I am looking at today is probably not suitable for those of you who
have run out of space, however for those of you upgrading from an AT machine
with a limited budget or those of you building a second computer or server this
case may just be what you are after.

The case we are looking at is not the P4 ready version, as it wasn't purchased
for use with a Pentium 4 system. The one we purchased cost* $75 and the
P4 ready version weighs in $10 dearer, at $85. Both come standard with a PSU
rated 250W, the only difference being that the P4 ready version comes with a
P4 suitable PSU.
