That Antec 300 is a ripoff, too expensive. BTW, where are you located? If you are in Vancouver, I could offer to sell my Antec 300 case.

Dan means the Coolermaster HAF912.

And TBH, if you "just" light gaming on a budget, I suggest an AMD build instead.

For $100 or so, you can easily get an AM3+ motherboard that supports next gen Bulldozer processor. IE: NCIX.com - Buy Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3 AMD970 ATX AM3+ DDR3 2PCI-E16 3PCI-E1 2PCI RAID SATA3 USB3.0 Motherboard - Gigabyte - GA-970A-UD3 - in Canada

For $110, NCIX.com - Buy AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Quad Core Processor 3.2GHZ AM3 8MB Cache 125W Retail Box - AMD - HDZ955FBGMBOX - in Canada

And invest the rest of the monies on a better video card.

Please keep this in mind about mem express

THEY PRICE MATCH WITH ANY ONLINE COMPETITOR

So do yourself a favor and compare everything with shopbot.ca plz :)

overall the system looks great, I'd still suggest SB over AMD right now.
