You are spending to much and not getting enough. $140 for a case with one fan? Look at the Antec 900 or something like it. Here's a P182 for $70 after MIR;

Can't recall reading anything about the PSU, but you can get a very good 750 watter with a lot less bling for about half that.

Take a look at these coolers, one even has an led fan, which does nothing as far as keeping things cool. It does look cool though.

You can get the one without the led here alot cheaper after MIR;
