Liteon aren't better, plus the case is probly really cheesy, and you'll need a better power supply. Liteon are ALWAYS really loud. Liteon is just cheaper, not better.

Last liteon drive I bought lasted only a few months. http://www.raidmax.com/ the case is in the intro is the Scorpio... Pretty cool looking if you ask me . Also the Raidmax PSU's are highly recommended next to antec. My system only requires 328 watts with everything at maximum load I calculated it all out.

"Also the Raidmax PSU's are highly recommended next to antec."

By whom exactly? Raidmaxx have crap PSUs. Cases are a matter of personnal taste and I hate big and brash (aka tacky). I prefer the subtle look. They try to copy Thermaltake cases (which I also dislike) but at least THermaltake are original, well built and have good PSUs.

Well you did ask for critique... Always just seems like someone trying to show off if you ask me. Otherwise They'd ask BEFORE they buy...

It gives the exact power use of processors etc at full load. Gives powersupplys they use in their own systems to. I doubt a company would reccomend anduse a POS psu.

Yes, companies that produce cases for the "budget concious" use crap PSUs to keep prices down. There's a reason a good brand PSU costs more than a Raidmax case and PSU put together. I'd much rather work out my own power usage for my own system

" i like the HDD"

I like that HD and graphics card.

Last time I checked Liteon doesn't manufacture drives, they just repackage them from other companies. I know several people who've gotten drives from them that turned out to be pioneer or plextor Fairly decent deals
