T.F. is tech support, way better than what Costco can give.

anyways, remember that when you buy a pc... you get a warranty and tech support unlike customs... you have to troubleshoot yourself
Uh no? Those are actually pretty competitive prices. If you could shave it down to 1200 or 1300 newegg wouldn't still be in business.

You could build a "better" machine for less, but better is subjective to your needs. That precise system for that price is actually quite a good deal.

yes the machine is a good deal but you can save in some areas when self building and get better quality parts. I am not telling you to self-build here as there would be very little financial reward merely that your computer will be more reliable if self-built
