Antec makes the best PSU out there. $85 bucks for a 550W II powerhouse.

I'd suggest and eVGA GPU so you can "step-up" to a G80 or G71 for only the price difference if within 90 Days of purchase. What a DEAL!

Read what he said. No INTAKE for the front fan. And from the looks of it, he is correct. That front fan is nearly pointless without some way of getting fresh air to it.

I'm sure theres like a little bevelled slot on the bottom of the front panel, like most other cases.

Has anyone ever heard of this PSU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16817159026. I would get that and the LAXA since XG doesnt make the dragon with no power supplies.Are you guys sure the Dragon PSU wont be powerful enough I heard it was pretty good.
