    Budget case and PSU

    I am building a computer for my friend with a budget of $550. He needs everything except for CD drives. He wants an Intel 805 dual core and a decent video card. I'll provide him with a gig of ram. He wants to OC the cpu as much as possible. I need a cheap case that will be solid, and a PSU that is cheap, yet able to provide enoguh juice to provide a stable overclock of the 805 of maybe 3 ghz. They could be separate or come together, but they must be cheap because he still needs to buy a hd and a video card.

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Cheap is as litle money as possible, yet still remaining usable and durable.

    I was thinknig of the Sonata II, but I was looking for something of close to the same quality is the PSU deparment, but not neccessarily of the smae quality in teh case. I don't want a flimsy case, but I am not too worried about its overall quality.

    As for the case I don't think I've seen any lower price than this:

    And for a power supply:
    Or One 12V rail:

    Here's a budget case and PSU combo. The PSU is 350 watts but should be ample enough for most applications, especially budget.
    Gigabyte GA-F2A88X-UP4
    AMD A10-7870K @ 4.1 GHz, iGPU @ 1.1 GHz
    Cooler Master Hyper 212 evo
    2x8GB Corsair Vengeance Pro DDR3-2400
    EVGA SuperNova NEX750G

    The 350W Antec with case for $25 after rebate. Fry's has it for that price for another 45 minutes.
