if you want to save oney on b1gpals setup get a cheaper PSU the corsair is really nice but pretty expensive, if i were you i would get something like a Hiper Type R 580 watt and also imo the antec 900 isnt that great of a case (my good friend has it and i just cant stand it) i would go with a thermaltake armor instead but thats just my opinion
