Oh man...to bad I couldn't get here in time. The other Antec had far better reviews. Not to mention it outputted the same amount of Amps...

...However, it was more expensive. I think you'll be fine. The 1000W is still good quality.

Don't worry. You'll be fine. Most of the bad reviews are complaints from it being DOA.

Ok. Hey Joga do you think i should just get everything now or do you think they'd have more sales later? I want that p6t, 6gb of corsair and that i7 940. I'm hoping if i wait i'll get a better deal....i doubt prices will go up

The prices definitely won't go up. How long can you wait? They may having something around Christmas time, but I guarantee you they won't have any price drops before that.
