Below is my first build, costs about $1150 from newegg. Built first for running multiple OS's, running VMware and applications. Built secondly for gaming. I am about to order it however I am doing a final checkoff from you guys, good or bad? Also, how hard will it be to actually put this together?

Why would you choose that one over the Corsair PSU? (just curious)

It's bronze certified, it's cheaper...and that card only requires a decent 500w psu with 30amps. That Antec gives you plenty of headroom if you ever decide to size up on a more power hungry vid card down the road. RE better quality, less $.
