    I'm putting together an L775 based system, and I want to know if I need a special case and PSU for it to work?

    Can I get away with just a cheap case from my local computer store with a 20pin PSU?

    P4 are sepically hungry about power requirements, so personally i would get a goo named brand PSU...and make sure it has the 24pin setup.

    But why put together a machine now?....AM2 just came out and conroe will be out in a month.

    I would wait.

    Its being put together out of my junk kit. I've got an x64 3200 as my main rig, and just throwing this together to sell.

    Do not put a Prescott in a junk case unless you're trying to firebomb someone.

    I tried that once, it literally burned things black. Was not a pretty sight.

    Chip survived, though. I still have it.

    I've decided to go with a Yeong Yang case from Xcase.co.uk.
    Its only marginally more expensive than a cheapie from my LCS.
