    Looks good to me. You're gonna love the Antec 900 case. I just finished a build with one I caught on sale a couple weeks ago for US$89 after US$35 rebate and no tax/freight I'm surprised how quite it is with all fans at medium speed (I added the cover fan, not supplied w/case)...............I'm surprised that it doesn't scoot across the floor with all the fans.:p

    Ooo I was just gonna say, the Nine Hundred ROCKS! Keeps your stuff nice and cooool ;)
    Try to get a better power supply though...something of higher quality and price.

    I was actually kinda wondering about that.. what does a higher quality psu do for me vs a lower quality one?

    It will actually DO its rated power and amps, and do it consistantly. Voltage spikes aren't cool :(

    It will also (usually) not blow up on you :D But 30 bucks for a 600w power supply...just kinda fishy.
