Try looking on www.newegg.com for parts instead. I've noticed that they have more quality parts than Tigerdirect has.

I meant for specific parts, or for all parts? because i think the video card/ motherboard combo is good.

Usually combos are there because a site is trying to get rid of certain items that aren't selling.

I'd stick with a DFI motherboard and eVGA video card.

I totally agree with the others, stick with newegg.com, unless you can find the exact same quality product on newegg.com for cheaper on tigerdirect.com (not usually, but sometimes is the case).
