That CP-850 will NOT fit in either case, it is a CPX form factor and only fits a few select cases like the antec 1200. I would get the antec 902 for the better cooling but swap the ram out for the OCZ platinum, it is cheaper and performs better.

correction, it seems that it will fit the p183, which seems a small case for a massive PSU but i would still stick with 902 and 850tx

agreed with hunter on the ram! the dominators are overpriced for what they offer.

you can't go wrong with either case though, they both perform great. it is really up to you based on aesthetics. i would personally choose the p183 because i had a p182 and it was great!

Also you do not need a 850 watt psu. Get the corsair 750tx psu. It will allow you to SLI gtx 275's and will fit in both cases fine!

okay.. so OCZ platinum it is !!
but corsair 850tx and 750 tx only $10 difference...

yea thats true if it is only $10 more then go for...it really is your call haha

Haha Ocz platinum is less stylish than the Dominators ^-^

Oh and if it's in your budget you could add a Heatsink to your build, maybe something from thermalright, Then you can OC even farther, not to mention it looks nice in your case Hahah!! sorry I have a thing for making my Pc look sick.

I'd go for the antec 902. the p183 is really cramped and difficult to work in. plus with decent fans and a good cpu cooler, the antec 902 is quiet enough. Unless size is a big issue though I would consider the antec1200. usually it's not much more then the 902.
