  1. The BP 430 isnt too good, and there is no point in paying for a PSU twice. If you get the antec 300 without the BP 430 you can save an extra 27 even though its not combo'd
    the corsair 400cx comes with 3 more amps on the 12 volt rail and is $10 less after mir

    other than that it looks pretty good especially for 450, the 720 may be a bit overkill but will let you venture into more CPU intensive things in the future.
  2. your right i wasnt paying attention and dont want to pay for 2 power supplys
  3. i found this combo with the loss be that great?

    AMD Phenom II X3 705e Heka 2.5GHz Socket AM3 65W Triple-Core Processor Model HD705EOCGIBOX - Retail
    Antec Three Hundred Illusion Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail

  4. The 720 is only $3 more, I seriously recommend it over the 705e. If you really want a processor + case combo, then consider this one instead.

    AMD Phenom II X3 720 2.8GHz Socket AM3
    COOLER MASTER Centurion 5 CAC-T05-UB Black
    Combo Price: $155.98
