Get a 460GTX over a 465GTX. You should also edit your post to change it to "465GTX" instead of "260GTX". Can't say I'm a fan of the Antec 902, but whatever floats your boat. It looks good otherwise.

PS: 1TB F3s are on sale for $59 at some website that I forget the name of if you want to bother with buying from two websites. Meritline, I think?

The F3 deal, I think, has ended at Newegg but I think I've seen that price very recently at Microcenter. I've also seen the F3 in a really nice combo at the egg... but I don't remember what it was combo'd with, I just remember it was a good price.

I agree w/Lime re: GTX 460 instead of 465. Here's a similar deal, same board w/ GTX 460:

Better card. No rebate, though. $40 more. Check out combos for other 460/mobo combos (like evga), see if you can find a better deal.

edit: sorry, should explain. GXT 460 = higher core/memory clocks, more processing cores...better! Not sure why combo is so much more expensive than 465, though. Like say, maybe look at other brands' combos.
