You don't have a vid card and psu in that build...but ya it's compatible. btw, what budget range are you shooting for ?

Instead of that case, I say you go with the Antec 900, or hell if you want to cheap but good get the 300.

Antec 300 - $55

Antec 900 - $110

Everything else seems to be good, also if you get the 300 you need to get 3 120mm fans, they are cheap you can get em for about $5.

begone with your prices :p $74.48
Antec Nine Hundred Chassis - Mid-tower $51.23
Antec Three Hundred Case

Thank you for your responses !

I was trying to stay in the $500 range...the processor is in the combo deal.

I picked that particular antec case because that model came with the power supply. They seem to have descent power supplies.

You are correct, there is no video card yet. I currently have a 7800gt , I am looking for a inexpensive upgrade that would work with this config

This is a nice setup and with an aftermarket hsf will overclock well
look for a 4830 for 75.00 in the next few weeks as prices will continue to fall to swap out that 7800 gt ( you will get 200 to 300% increase in performance )
