Looks good but personally I'd pick the HAF 912 over the antec 300. Also you might want a cheap aftermarket heatsink such as the hyper 212 plus for your cpu, the one that comes with your cpu sucks.

I like it, solid build for the money =] That 5850 is such a good deal(on newegg, if in stock is $10 cheaper), would be sweet if they drop to $100 soon like the 4850's.
