Hi guys, first time builder here, I'm really undecided on the case I want and the PSU.

These are the cases I am considering:

Antec 1100 - http://www.scan.co.uk/products/antec-1100-eleven-hundre...

Corsair carbide 400r - http://www.scan.co.uk/products/corsair-carbide-series-4...

Or I could go an extra £10 and get the series 500r - http://www.scan.co.uk/products/corsair-carbide-series-5...

For my PSU I am thinking about this one - http://www.scan.co.uk/products/750w-antec-true-power-ne...

Although that might be overkill I may go to an SLI set up after Christmas.

Please let me know what you think of these choices or if I can improve them.

Here is my build so far - http://pcpartpicker.com/uk/p/k0Cx

Thanks in advance.

Hey,

That PSU is a 750watt based on the specs you provided you would really only need 600watts of power but as you said your going to be going with SLI
soon, if I was you I would get this PSU

http://www.scan.co.uk/products/750w-corsair-builder-ser...

It is from corsair and most of the cases you picked are corsair so it would fit good in the cases.

For the case I would go for the 500r series you picked if you can spend a bit more get this case

It is very well built ect. Hope I helped.

I'll second the Corsair PSU, and point out any of the cases are good, Pick the one that looks best to you, as you are the one that has to look at it every day for the next couple of years (at least)

I went for the 500r in the end but I chose the corsair tx750m as that looked a bit better quality, thanks for the help!
