No, buy the parts yourself.
I priced a superior computer with a better quality power supply to cost even less.
Notice that it says barebones. You add the RAM, OS, ODD, and storage device.

Newegg.com - MSI A55M-P33 FM1 AMD A55 (Hudson D2) Micro ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
Newegg.com - AMD Athlon II X4 641 Llano 2.8GHz Socket FM1 100W Quad-Core Desktop Processor AD641XWNGXBOX
Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER Elite 430 RC-430-KWN1 Black Steel / Plastic Computer Case
Newegg.com - Antec NEO ECO 400C 400W Continuous Power ATX12V 2.3 / EPS12V 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Thank you. In about 2 months I'll have enough money to buy a computer and build it myself. I will need at least 16gb -24gb memory for Revit. Plus a top of the line Graphics card, 3.2GHz or more processor (Quad)(Preferably i7), 1 TB HDD, USB 3.0 for faster portable HDD data transfer, no monitor keyboard or mouse, and a cheap case. $500- $1200 in total.

Hiya bud, i just built my own from scratch and love it! for the Processor, i have found that the I5 2500k /3500k match the I7's quite nicely, i guess it depends on how much you want to spend, but i dont think the difference between the two are going to be to big. Do you know what type of GPU you want to run? AMD or Nvidia?

Honestly, I don't. The brands, to me, don't matter as long as I get something fast and efficient.

I have only used AMD GPU's but i think that GTX's are just as good. the only thing is Radeons seem to lead to the best bang for your buck. It all depends on how much you want to spend, and wether or not you want to crossfire or not.
