The case is excellent. I had it for a long time before I got a new one. It also looks pretty cool. As far as floppy drives, don't borther getting one. There not even used anymore. As far as power supplies it is a good idea to get a new one, the ones included usually don't work very long. Your first choice is to use Modular or not. I use the modular Ultra X2. It works really good for me and I like it alot. A lot of reviews say they short out after a while but I couldn't comment on this. I have had mine about 3 months and it still works fine.
