Also the only reason I'm getting the antec 900 is because it's on sale for $60.

and the EVGA GeForce GTX 480 refurbished is for sale on their website for $219 are there better cards in that benchmark?
For only $10 more you can grab this case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811119215 definitely a better buy. As for the psu, the high current gamer would be the better choice.

- Your DVD burner is 22x, why not get a 24x ? I suggest you this (with Lightscribe support).
- GTX 480 is an old graphics card, I recommend you getting a GTX 560 Ti or 570. I suggest you this or this.

The gtx 560 ti is a newer card and a great performer. The gtx 480 would give you better performance but it also requires substantially more power and it heats up like a b****. It's really up to you which you would prefer. If you could stretch your budget some more then you could pick up a gtx 570 or 6970 which are overall better cards but if they're too pricey then just go with a gtx 560 ti. It will handle any game at 1080p.

Edit: And this would be a better choice for the ram: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231427
And the mobo is fine, definitely a good mid range board.

Alright looks like I'm going to get 2x EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti FPB and crossfire them together.

That should be most of my changes.
