Default decent gaming bundle from Newegg for $720 shipped...

good deal...

my only question would be the psu, Rosewills don't really give me that warm fuzzy feeling that Corsairs or Antecs do...

$720 gaming bundle

You could easily trim some costs off of that build though. And Rosewills are great PSU's, I have one and it does everything it said it would

Looks like an alright deal. I'm a little sketchy about RoseWill PSU's as well, but they seem to have good reviews. Like every company, you can't write them off completely because you get a lemon. I'd take a chance, I did with mine. "PowerUP" didn't seem like a good decision, but 800w for 100 dollars was a hell of a deal. And I've loved it ever since I bought it.

Good luck with your purchase. Pics/benches if you buy, please.

See if you can find Rosewill somewhere there.

If you are thinking you are taking a chance on a PSU, you take a chance on ANY. I've been dealing with NewEgg for 3 weeks returning and replacing my $165 Corsair PSU. Failure happens to the best of them.

Good or bad, IDK. I didn't really look at anything.
