I just hooked up on a couple Antec SLK-3000B cases(no psu). Intel TAC compliant- so that's good for your P4, no window though. Comes with a 120mm rear exhaust and has a snap in mount for a 120x25mm fan in the front as well.

Got mine at Provantage though(2 cases for less than $100 shipped )... Newegg just has good pics.

Provantage has several different bundles with psu... I just didn't need the psu. Wish I could give you some performance reaction on the cases but I haven't put them in service yet... workin' on it!

I would stick with a 400+ watt Fortron/Sparkle/OCZ/Antec/Enermax psu... just to name a few brands. If you're going to seriously OC that P4, you will need a 500+ watt single 12v rail psu with all the 12v amps massed on one rail. For a moderate OC, a dual 12v rail psu will do fine and be more in tune with modern design.

Lastly, I would steer clear of the modular psu's available on the market. These modular type psu's will likely be the design of the future but are not status quo just yet.

My personal favorite is the Antec P180...

Power supply : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817703001

Between the two of them, you'll never have problem with cooling or power!!
