im looking at cases and i come across the Thermaltake Element G. it seems to be a good case with what it offers, my only dissatisfaction with it is the lack of a side window but i could live without it. is this a good case?

anyways it comes with the Thermaltake TR2 RX 850. at least thats what the image on newegg shows. but anyways is this a good psu?

my main reason for inquiring on this combo is because i could potentially save $75 off my current selection for case and psu. which for reference is:

NZXT Tempest Evo - though i am obviously deciding on changing this out... seems that some parts crap out after about 4 months.

CORSAIR Professional Series HX750 - i know this is probably one of the best psu's i can get so thats why i am questioning the Thermaltake.

any incite is much appreciated.

Hi, first of all what kind of hardware are you planning on installing? Which motherboard, cpu cooler and video card? Are you planning to Sli/Crossfire you rig because a 750w- 850w psu far exceeds the demands of a single GPU. Tigerdirect has the Coolermaster HAF 932 Advanced at a ridiculous price. Actually the same price as the Themaltake Element G without the PSU. Or you could get the Cooler Master

Or you could get the Cooler Master 690II Advanced plus the optional transparent window for the same price $119.99

The Thermaltake TR2 RX 850 might be a decent psu but it's deactivated on the website so it my be old stock their trying to get rid of by bundling with the case.
And if you looking at the Corsair HX750 Proo/Silver you might as well get the Seasonic X750 full modular Gold certified at the same price.

im going to run dual amd 6870 in crossfire (unless the 6950 drop in price within the next few months), im getting the ASRock 970 EXTREME4 AM3+ and will run the AMD Phenom II X2 555 BE (hope to unlock the cores and eventually when the bulldozer releases a few lines and drop in price ill get one of them)

that has actually been a worry of mine and i was hoping to wing it and get lucky enough to unlock the 2 cores.... but as you say it might be better to put down the extra cash and get a guaranteed performance.

unlock a fortune to me, many failed and successful and it is not a guarantee about Unlock Core, while the Phenom II 955 BE overclocked to 4Ghz if it would be great and josh gandozzz

I had no idea that the AMD Phenom II X2 555 BE was going that cheap. I would have to agree with henydiah, go with the intel cpu there is a member on Hardforum selling a i7 930 for $160. I'd be all over it if I had bought a i7 920D0 this weekend local for the same price. I'm getting the Seasonic X750 myself. "Go for the gold"

The XFX 750 would be a good alternative to the HX750. Same build as Seasonic X series.
