Default Re: Is this computer decent?

You would be hard-pressed to build a computer to match that for cheaper, however remember that a home built computer will usually have a better mobo and psu (not to mention a personally picked case). While that is an excellent price for a pre-built, it's still a pre-built and I still recommend building your own.
