hey there, and welcome to ocn

That looks pretty awesome, where you buying from uk or us?

and Im thinking you will have issues with a 520w psu, with that gear id be looking at a 650W + to be fair id be getting a 750+ to b on the safe side.

Also, why only 500gb hard drive? go find a samsung spinpoint f3 1tyb they are cheap and very nice drives. Or, considering your current expenditure, just go get an ssd for your main drive

on a personal note - eeeeeew the haf? really, most fugly case ever!!! antec 900 original ftw

Hey ,
I order the parts from Israel. regarding the PSU- i am looking to replace it but for the mean time i will stay with him ( matter of weeks untill it will be replaced)/

the reason i choose this case is because it has a lot of space for my video card and for the Nvidia Physx i am planing to do in the coming future.

Antec 900? will this answer my requirements ?

That psu is more than enough to run at stock, but a touch more (600w or so) would be ideal if you're shooting for overclocking that 2500k and 580.

any of the big cases will do you mate, its a bit of personal preference in design and looks, I hate the look of the haf its a bit of a thing with me and my mate (who has one and thinks it looks amazing)

whereas the antec 900 i find to be sleek and lovely and very well designed with the drive cages etc, go look it up online and the inside etc youl see why i like it. also the new (old design but new build) original 900's have the backplate predrilled for cable management which was one of the only criticisms of the case really, as well as some the nice touches and its not that expensive as far as big cases go. Airflow is amazing stock fans arent bad. and it will fit a full size card in it, my gtx 280 fits fine in there.

The Antec 900 is HORRIBLE for cable management unless you mod it in some way, and have a modular PSU. I had one for years, and eventually modded it to help some, but I was still way more happy with my Lancool K62.

Hello ! Is your RAM this ?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231405

If so why slower 1333 ? Do you need 12gb ? I have ONLY 6gb and use my pc for the same things as you !!I would suggest 6gb of faster Ram 1600-2000mhz ( just my opinion!)
