That's a well regarded case.

Overkill on the power supply in terms of wattage. Antec is a decent brand, but some of its lines have a better reputation than others. I think the "Earthwatts" line is pretty good. As far as I know, Antec doesn't make their own power supplies--some are made by quality outfits and some not so much. I'd go with Seasonic myself.

Asus is generally well thought of, but you may have a different opinion if you ever have to deal with their customer support.

Seagate had a great rep on drives until the last year or two, but nowadays you see more positive comments about Western Digital--but in reality all hard drives are something of a crapshoot, so I wouldn't worry about it much--shop by price among Seagate, WD, and Samsung. You can get a bad one from any manufacturer without trying very hard.

Funnily enough, only the True Power 750w is listed as running a 5850 single and the 650 for a 4890, but that's enough.

In terms of upgrading in future ie crossfire, 650w would be pushing at that point and why buy a whole new psu in future or spend a couple extra bucks for one now.

I don't use Crossfire and in the future I'll build a new pc if required. I probably won't upgrade except for the gpu and even then a new system would probably be better.
