    however EVGA does have a great warranty and customer support.
    great job on choosing the parts, it looks like you did your homework :)
  2. PSU : Antec BP550 Plus 550W Continuous Power 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active PFC
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371016 $64.99
    CASE : NZXT Source 210
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811146075 40$
    COOLER MASTER Elite 430
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119227 40$ after rebates.
    COOLER MASTER HAF 912
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119233 50$ after rebates.
  3. Negative on that PSU. Antec is a great brand, but Basiq is their crappiest line. Its not very efficient and will create heat. You want something that is bronze certified or better.

    The one suggested above me is a good choice, but if you have the money I would go higher yet. The PSU is one of the most important parts in your build, particularly if you plan to overclock, etc. Seasonic, Corsair, and Antec all have some decently priced bronze models. Any of their models over 400w would handle your build.

    Antec EarthWatts Green EA-430D Green 430W -$54

    Browse around though, because the prices fluctuate on them all a bit. Corsair and Antec in particular often do $20 rebates that they actually honor.
  4. Both of those PSUs are way to much money. This is a much better buy.

    Or if you are willing to chance the rebate,

    Other then that you look good.
  5. MSI N460GTX-M2D1GD5/OC2 GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) 1GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
    Free NBA2K11 game coupon w/ purchase
    $109.99 after mail-in rebate card

    Good call - I agree that these are great options for this build too.
