Thats not bad... but the motherboard and cpu setup. Why buy everything else top of the line then get junk mobo. Get an asus or something. You should have no problems with that setup.

Tiger is way too high. The only time I use them is when what I want is not in stock on newegg. Plus, shipping and handling is outrageous.
