I say BOO, get a Lian. XD
I've had Antec cases & PSUs, as well as Lian Li cases (including my current Lian), and for the money I'll take a Lian Li + a PCP&C PSU any day over any Antec combination.
LIAN LI PC-7B plus II $89.99
PCP&C 750 Quad $199.99
Thermaltake 250w $55.49 (Not as though it's even needed, but just for the sake of comparison)
Over $100 cheaper, and you're still getting better equipment. You really wouldn't even need the Thermaltake supplemental supply, as just about any rig that we could put together, save for some 10 HDD RAIDed, Quad SLI, AMD FX Quadfather behemoth, and even then, the PCP&C might be able to pull it off.
For the average schmuck who thinks more expensive is better, go fo rthe Antec P190... for the enlightened, there are far better choices for the money.
