Should I get this or is there something better?

the case is super dated and can't actually mount the cooler and gpu rad. I'd make changes:

  • get an air cooler, saves money and noise and does the same job
  • the EVGA 650P2 is the same price as the RMx650 so that's a better buy
  • get a case that's decent for the times, not one that was the defacto budget case 10 years ago simply because it was fairly large
  • windows USB version is the same price as buying the disk and dvd drive without the slow install, clutter and noise of the optical drive
