hard drive link wrong also...

for 100 bucks you can get an antec 900 or haf 922 instead of the other case; never heard of it, might be good but the 900 and 922 are two of the best. also idk if there are any combo deals with a psu for those cases at the moment, one more thing to consider i guess..

*Edit: just looked up the haf 922 for ya, has this combo deal: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...

10 or 20 bucks less than your other combo i think

yeah i took a look at that, it seems to be a good deal, I like the HAF but not sure if im sold on that psu. Well ill just take it into consideration before I buy. Here is a video on that case i like the tool-less design and all since this will be my first build.

yeah the tool-less design is nice, the HAF is like that too, i like it more personally but that's my own opinion (i also own it haha). just a warning if you do go with the HAF: it's really big...

You could also do a pretty nice Intel/Socket 1156 build with a Core i5 as your cornerstone:

Case: $59.99 free shipping
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Core i5 Cpu/Mobo/Sapphire Vapor 5770 GPU: $446+2.99 shipping
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...

Corsair 450 watt PSU/DVD Burner: $87.98
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...

Samsung Spinpoint F3 500GB Hard drive: $54.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Windows 7 64 bit OS: $104.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Corsair DDR3 RAM: 97.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Total: $859.93 including shipping-$20 rebates = 839.93

This is a pretty decent build with quality components.
That Corsair 450 watt should be plenty to run that setup with a 5770.
But if you want to crossfire in the future, you may want to move up to a 650 watt or higher.
