thats a bit much for an 9800GTX. I would rather get an video card from newegg and save me some money.
or just accept the fact that you are on a budget and just deal with what you have now. Its kind of harsh, but thats how technology is.
Might have the latest tech, but in half a year, one or more part will be outdated/outperformed.

If you're going the Best Butt route, that Antec is the best one to get at that price.

I was going to suggest this from Newegg: OCZ StealthXStream OCZ600SXS 600W - $74.99 ($49.99 after $25.00 Mail-In Rebate)

Newegg even has the EVGA GeForce 9800 GTX+ SSC Edition - $219.99 ($199.99 after $20.00 Mail-In Rebate). It's clocked higher and is cheaper than the BFG at Best Butt.

From best buy, it will total up to about $350 with Tax.
While with that money on newegg, you can get the 260GTX and an )CZ 600W
260GTX - $240
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817341010 - $75
Total is 315 without shipping.
Looks like a better deal to me.
Or you can get the 9800GTX+ from newegg instead of the 260GTX and save about $50.
