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:

Here's a budget case and PSU combo. The PSU is 350 watts but should be ample enough for most applications, especially budget.
