Huh, I'm surprised. Antec caught my attention years ago when I was checking out an old file server that hadn't been checked in years. The server was choked with dust, and the power supply fan had stopped due to wear and dust. The Antec power supply in the thing was so hot you couldn't touch it, but the server just kept running. That impressed me. Of course, your mileage may vary.

No worries since, the only thing about the power supply is that they had issues with the fan ticking.

I am coming close to pulling the trigger saw this 4th of july combo on newegg what do you guys think of the components it includes??

COOLER MASTER HAF 912 RC-912-KKN1 Black SECC/ ABS Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case (Model:RC-912-KKN1)
*Awesome case, and an awesome price. Very easy access throughout the casing, and it looks gorgeous.

GIGABYTE GA-Z68MA-D2H-B3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard (Model:GA-Z68MA-D2H-B3)
*Good Motherboard, a buddy has one of these and he has had no issues. I personally use the 890X-UD7 and can tell you i've never had an issue with Gigabyte.

COOLER MASTER GX Series RS750-ACAAE3-US 750W ATX12V v2.31 SLI Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply (Model:RS750-ACAAE3-US)
*Not a huge fan of this, but for what your saving on everything else you could change it out if you wanted to.

Intel Core i7-2600K Sandy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80623I72600K (Model:BX80623I72600K)
*Good overall CPU

CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 15000) Desktop Memory Model CMZ8GX3M2A1866C9B (Model:CMZ8GX3M2A1866C9B)
*Good ram, you want DDR3 to keep up with the times for sure, and 8GB is more than enough.

Seagate Barracuda Green ST1500DL003 1.5TB 5900 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive (Model:ST1500DL003)
*Also not a fan of this, see if they have one with Western Digital as Seagate has gone way down hill in terms of quality compared to their older models. If looking for Western Digital I highly recommend their Caviar Black Series.

LITE-ON DVD Burner - Bulk Black SATA Model iHAS124-04 (Model:iHAS124-04)
*Great brand, great DVD burner drive.

TREND MICRO Titanium Antivirus+ - 1 User for System Builders (Model:TiTAV18056)
*Cool addon I suppose? Lol Not necessary but it'll work.

Case doesnt convince me on the combo, did some searching and I didnt knew newegg had a combo search this is perfect found the combo with the antec 900 v3 and an antec 900W PSU. What do you guys think of the PSU 900W should be enough if I wanna geta second card in the future right?

Kinda like the antec little better. Looks like a better case, but considering it since the saving are huge. But if it was the Haf X it would be a different thing :P
