I tried posting in another thread with the case as topic but couldn't get any answers. Anyone got this combo and cares to comment. I'd really like to know what others think before i drop that cash on a combo thats lacking.

my new build is:
Intel E6850
EVGA Mobo
EVGA 8800gts g92
2gig ram
1 dvd /dl
1 500 gig H/d

Thanks in advance for any input :)

It's priced too high. Fry's has had the antec 900 for $80-100 with no rebate. Add a pc power and cooling 750 watt for around $160 and your total is $240-260.

#1) Get the E8400 not E6850. Big Boost in Perfomance. (Q6600 reasonable choice as well.)

#2) Nice case and PSU, but easily $150 more than you need to spend on a real nice case and PSU. If you run "Dual 9800x2" you will likely need about a 750w. If you go SLI on the 8800GTs, then something like the Corsair620w will do you fine. Nothing wrong with the case PSU, but I would go for cheaper alternatives and perhaps use the funds to go dual 8800GT.

thanks for the thoughts on the CPUS, but i had gotten the processor already :) . Though with this mobo i can step up with really no hassle so if I feel I could or should do better I will in fact go with the quad suggested :D  Thanks!

the cm stacker has loads of reviews that say it rocks as a case, the antec 900 is nice, but not as good as the cm stacker, so if youve got the cash get the cm :)
