Your PSU is on the "floor" - so wires are going UP to your motherboard- if that's not weird enough for you (most mobo and PSU are made to have them go DOWN) think physics... hot air rises.. so ... when that PSU gets hot those fans blow up- right ONTO your new Video and CPU, Even WITH good cooling (assuming non liquid/phase) its NEVER a good idea to blow HOT air onto something your tryin to keep cool.
Prices have changed quite a bit- that set ups almost like what I want, 22" moni included runnin round 1500, minus the Sli of course.
im sorry but i have to disagree.
I have the cooler master 690 which has the psu on the bottom and it also has a vent where to psu goes, to the fan part of the psu faces down.
this way any heat that the psu generates doesnt interfere with the other cpu parts.Sure...you may only be talking about the antec 900, but ppl have had amazing temps with that pc.
And if you get a case with a psu on the bottom, just make sure you get a psu with long enough cables, you also gotta be smart about cable routing.
I was able to route all my cable behind the mobo tray so everythign went well.
