My System Specs


Yeah it works pretty nicely.
Sorry if i haven't been replying just got back from a trip to the rockies.

Anywho that $774 is quite a bit above that $600 stated earlier haha, i was trying to stick close to the 600.
Also the Antec 300 is a bit more of a pain to work with, with the CM590 it's larger, more airflow, and much, much easier to work with than the Antec 300, and with a modular power suppy some of that extra help get's a bit wasted IMO.

I don't know jack about HDD's, but the Blacks are good i hear.

Looks good though.
