If you don't mind dealing with a mail-in rebate, then I would look at this case instead:
http://www.newegg.co...N82E16811129155

Antec makes quality PSUs while Apevia PSUs are somewhat suspect. Now, if you're buying that case purely for aesthetic reasons, then that's a personal preference, obviously, but a quality PSU is very important to any build. I agree with ruthandtroy on the RAM issue. Also, if you can wait a couple weeks ATI will be releasing the X2600 which is designed to compete directly with the nVidia 8600 and, if rumors are true, outperforms it in most cases. If nothing else, you should see a price drop in the 8600.
