Looks good, the only thing I would consider as a price against performance thing would be the Asus Rev 3 sandy bridge mobos like thier P8H67 M LE. As well as being a personal preference it would save you like 60 if you bought from Dabs or Scan

OOps, no flag but your time zone says your in USA, so I guess Newegg would be your equivilant, and obviously you would save dollars not 's.

The Antec is a good basic case and the 2500K is high on the price/performance lists. 8 GB of G Skill is likewise a fine choice.

The only thing I'd quibble with is the PSU. Googling says that a complete system with that graphics card uses under 200 watts at idle and less than 400 watts under a load.

For equal or less money, you can get any of several Seasonic, XFX, or Corsair power supplies in the 500 to 650 watt range that have plenty of power for your setup and might give you better build quality. I think that Cooler Master is actually made by Seventeam or Enhance.

I don't see anything in the youtube reviews that would indicate you couldn't use SLI.

It's a full mid-tower with a bottom-mounted PSU. As long as your motherboard would support it, I don't see why you couldn't SLI--you may have to use additional case cooling.

Thanks for the help and sorry for all the questions but..

With the 560 ti would getting an ASUS make a difference to getting a gigabyte its 10dollar difference.

I wouldn't expect much if any difference, but you should google for reviews of any particular product you have in mind.

I had an Antec 300 and ended up selling it. It reminded me of an older case inside. I now have three Cooler Master HAF912 cases, which cost nearly the same....yet offer so many more features and better cable management.
