The only thing I see wrong with it, is that PSU. It's not a recommended brand. If you buy that and a separate PSU, I'd go for it.

Doesn't seem like you will be able to beat that price. Even if you waited until Cyber Monday, and assuming you got a killer deal on a mobo/processor combo, you'd still be in the high $700s. This same model is on ebay now for $969 too btw.

I saw that same deal and I'm hesitant to bite. It says the motherboard is a Intel Z68, but still don't know what kind of connections it has.
How many SATA III connections does it have?
How many PCI Express 2.0 x16 slots does it have? 1?
What kind of memory slots are supported (regarding Hz)?

either way, it looks like a good buy, because it has a really good processor and a good video card, but I have a feeling that price will be $100-200 less a month from now
