      Hum, It's not the most unpleasant, but all a little last season's (FM1) or low grade stuff while still pricey. Things like a M-ATX Biostar mobo, but pared with a that case and a the a supposed 750W PSU it all a little wonky to me.

      The case itself not anything unhealthy, I could overlook it being big for the M-ATX mobo. Then there's the PSU is let's see how many marques can we attach to it... Zephyr/Cougar/HEC/Compucase which ultimately is Orion. As to the PSU I don't know if it's good or bad (it is 80+ Active PFC); although, my issue why 750W PSU for a build that in all honesty won't ever have the need? There is a point to "over buying" a PSU, and I'd rather think nothing higher than 500W. Again it may well work but I can't attach that $70 -AR price they're asking, when a $35-40 could do all what you need and still could be efficient. The memory is Kingston's latest budget/generic with fancy heat-spreaders, although it is 1.5V 8GB it's DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) and for $55 ouch!

      It might work for someone but truthfully it's overpriced to the tune of like $50. Heck if they had it with the MSI A75A-G35 (Hudson D3) ATX, and PNY XLR8 8GB (2 x 4GB) 1600 (PC3 12800) It would be a smarter mix.

      Besides that, Casecutter, Super Combos are suppose to come with super sized fries and a Coke...
