  1. 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
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129021

    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.

  3. 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

    Thanks
  4. 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 )
  5. Try going with the Provantage 300 and this PSU:

    That is a good deal for your money, and that PSU can handle 2 4850's xfire'd if you wish later. (or if you upgrade to a 4830 now, and then add a 4850 later then that can work too).

    This PSU is also a great deal with free shipping, which can save you like $15 (PSU's are expensive to ship).
