I cant comment on the Antec cause I havent used that one. I have used antec PSU in the past and they worked great.

Some other good options:

Nice build, goin to be a sweet system. I have a suggestion for the PSU though. Look at an OCZ GameXstream. Its around $120 for the 600W and $130 for the 700W, its got 4 +12V rails @ 18As each, and if you like LEDs, its got a blue one . I have the 600W one and i love it, its quiet and lights up the back of my case nicely.

For cross-fire, you need a Cross-fire edition card (mastercard) and a cross-fire ready card (reg. X1900XT). I believe the 1900 mastercard runs at XT speeds but you could easily OC to XTX speeds. And if the cards are two different speeds, they run at their own speeds (I'm pretty sure). Also, the normal X1900XT will easily OC to XTX speeds. The XT is an excelent card.

Yeah, love mine. It really is a great card.

As for your build, I really can't fault any of your choices. Great job with the research beforehand. Nice to see people acting courteous around her for once. Post pics when you're done, as well as OC and benchmark results.

Thanks, yeah i like to know what im geting before i buy it hehe. Yeah its nice to be on a board where the people dont call you a newb when you ask how to do something.

And the power supply ill check up more on the ones you said i realy like that last one, with the cables that can come off the PSU directly thats a nice feature. Also i have no idea what brands are good lol, all i know is im never geting another Chaintech board or what ever, thats what i got on this comp its ok. But i think its caused me some turbble.

The video card that i have there is not a Master Crossfire?. Im guessing but thats ok for now, Later on should i just buy a Card directly from ATI?

The Computer Now

Added the new PSU 600w probly gona need it , i want to add more fans, because my rooms on the top floor and i have 2 computers and a tv in the room and when its cold out side its still so hot you can sweat in my room.

Right your card is not a mastercard, its a cross-fire ready card. When/if you want cross-fire, you can get a X1900 Series mastercard although R600 is supposed to be like SLI where u can use to identical cards. Mastercards cost a little more than the reg. cards. You dont need a to buy a mastercrad by ATI either.

Idk much about sound cards but Creative makes good cards. Take a look at them.

btw, the links dont work on the last post

you got an aftermarket CPU cooler?

probably want one if you're gonna overclock

floppy drive? Annoying that you still need them for RAID setups and bios flashing.

And ill check up on creative cards i have one allready but its old and i dont think it can hook up to the case audio jacks. As for flopy i have tones laying around. I took a computer repair class and the teacher let me ceep stuff. I was the best student i went in knowing how to build a comptuer only buy watching my dad install new ram we got when i was 15. And fooling around with our 6 year old compaq
