  1. Ok since Sony doesnt want me to upgrade my power supply, I'm gonna transfer all the guts to another case. I would like some recommendations in the $50-$80 range for a case and a recommendation for a PSU aswell. Thanks!

    Recommending a computer case is one of the hardest things to do, since we have no way of knowing what your taste is in terms of looks of your computer. And we don't know what you define as aesthetically pleasing.

    Mid-tower or full-tower? Clear side or no clear side? Bezel door or no door? Sleek and beautiful or stylish and well-illuminated? A case is something you have to select yourself that looks good to you.

    As for the power supply recommendation, we need to know the exact specs of your Sony PC to recommend the right power supply, since we don't know how much power your PC needs. Post this please.

    If it helps, you can go here:
    to calculate how much wattage you need. Then come here for a PSU recommendation for however many watts you need.

    Keep us posted :)

    As far as towers I'm very open minded although thinking about it since I leave the PC on overnight sometimes and its in my room, a closed case would be better, I might have some trouble sleeping with big blue coming at me.
    From the link you gave me I get that I need 291W with the card I want (Radeon x1950 pro). I might have made mistakes, otherwise my PSU outputs 294.9W or so. I might still change it for future usage and to have more room, it too close for my taste. Either way this is my pc:

    Only real change is that I added 1Gb of RAM and I run a 19" display.

    just ensure the new case is roomy for all your stuff.

    It's also suggested that you replace the case's power supply because generic PSU's are crap. I have one, but I also have a dedicated power supply for my video card.
