Because it has a bigger PSU and is water cooled (probably AIO).

You don't need an i7 for gaming. Usually those prebuilts skimp bad on GPU even though you need more GPU than CPU for gaming.

Built this for you.

CPU:
Intel Core i3 3220 3.30GHz Ivy Bridge Dual Core 3Mb Cache LGA1155 Processor, Retail [BX80637I33220] from Overclock.co.uk

Motherboard:
ASRock B75M B75 Socket LGA1155 DDR3 HDMI DVI-D Dsub USB3.0 SATA3 mATX Motherboard [B75M] from Overclock.co.uk

RAM:
Corsair Vengeance LP Blue 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 PC3-12800 1600MHz Dual Channel Kit, Retail [CML8GX3M2A1600C9B] from Overclock.co.uk

Case:
Fractal Design Core 1000 micro ATX Case, No PSU [FD-CA-CORE-1000-BL] from Overclock.co.uk

SSD + HDD:
Samsung 830 Series 128GB SATA3 6GB/s SSD 2.5inch Solid State Drive Desktop Kit, Retail [MZ-7PC128D/EU] from Overclock.co.uk
Seagate ST1000DM003 Barracuda 1TB SATA3 6Gbps 7200RPM 64MB Cache, OEM [ST1000DM003] from Overclock.co.uk

PSU:
Corsair Enthusiast TX 650W v2 ATX SLi Compliant PSU - 80 Plus Bronze Certified [CMPSU-650TXV2UK] from Overclock.co.uk

GPU:
EVGA 1024MB GDDR5 GeForce GTX 650 SuperClocked Overclocked VGA DVI HDMI PCI-E Retail [01G-P4-2652-KR] from Overclock.co.uk

527 total price. You wont find a prebuilt better than that. Before you ask, no, you don't need a quadcore for gaming. The i3 Ivy Bridge dual core will be better at games than a Sandy Bridge quad.

No it isn't a complete system. Just a list of components that will complete a system. All you need left over is the OS, mouse, and keyboard. To make up for the cost of those you will need to probably drop the SSD.
You can play most games on full settings with a 650, but not all. Your budget is a bit too small to guarantee maxed settings on every game.

Yea that works, just the quality of the PSU is substandard, the RAM isn't a known brand, and I'm not fond of Gigabyte anymore due to their poor RMA department.
If none of this bothers you, perfect choice.

Guess the people at jonnyguru are mistaken, they gave it a 9.

They must have missed all the OCZ PSUs that have burnt up in the past 3 years.
