To me, it looks fantastic. I was thinking about getting this and a 6870 or 7850 later and a SSD for a new build.

After the time runs out, will this combo still be available to buy? Not for the discounted price, but still as a combo? I see that I'd only save about $60, and I'm not in a position to buy right now, but I will be later.

That mobo looks like crap for overclocking, and Antec is generally considered to be a very overrated case maker.

Is this going to replace your old build? Because you'd be fine with just a new GPU.

The bundle is only 10% cheaper than if you bought everything separately, and some of the parts included aren't very good. I'd pass on this one.

I'd get a new GPU, but my mobo doesn't have a PCIe 2.0 slot, just 1.0 slots. I read that 2.0 cards will work, but sometimes they won't. Also, most cards out now use 3.0, which doesn't work at all with 1.0 from what I've read.
