Why: Because the CPU isn't that great, the Power supply is crap, and Ive never heard of that Motherboard, They also don't give the model of the video card: and it looks like theres alot of crap in it, so hes probably being overcharged. Which is why I asked for the Total Price.

Also they are giving Him ECC Memory which will cause gaming preformence to suffer, it also appears to be geared more towards a server with the CPU and large amount of storage.
