I would change the case because i am pretty sure the 5870 wont fit in there...
but apart from that it looks good :)

I'm considering a 5870 in an Antec 300, too. After doing some research (Google "5870 Antec 300"), it appears it WILL fit if there's no drives in the lower bays. There's about one inch to spare.
