Default Antec case w/PSU $79?!

Came across this while I was browsing NE. - Antec Sonata III 500 Black 0.8mm cold rolled steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 500W Power Supply - Computer Cases

Anyone know anything about their PSUs? I'm seriously considering this for a medium end gaming rig.

Ive used many of their PSU's. I own a PC Repair business, and Antec PSU's are all I use. There solid, havent received one DOA, either. There very well priced as well.

Newegg doesn't throw in psu's to make it a deal, the manufacturer of the case puts the power supply in. Therefore yes it is an antec psu.

If you bother to look at the picture, you would see that it is indeed an Earthwatts 500w psu which is very good, i can run a full system and two 8800GT's on a 380w so the 500w will do you good.
