That antec is a steal!!! At it's normal price i still would choose the 550VX becuase you can get one of those for 90 bucks too and it has about the same amps but a better warranty and more stable power. However at $60 thats ridiculous.

I ordered it along with the Biostar ta780g and I'll be using its sweet HD3200 integrated GPU

Alright, I ordered that PSU, along with the E2180 Processor, Gigabyte DS3L motherboard, Mushkin 2GB RAM, and the MSI 9600GT.

I decided on the 9600GT as it had enough performance to pull away from the others, has considerable overclocking room so I can overclock it to perform close to a 8800gt 512, and I can also SLI them for cheap later if I need a performance boost.

Thanks for your help guys =]

nice chioces.

btw no you can't SLI the 9600s unless you swap out that motherboard as well.

yep, you'd need a SLI nForce chipset to use SLI Okitasoshi

whoops, yeah I forgot to mention that. I was tired when I wrote that post xD. I just meant the 9600GT scales better in SLI than the 3850 or 8800gs. It'll be a bit before I SLI anyway, hopefully Nvidia chipsets get better, I heard the 7-series chipsets weren't spectacular.
