Price he is asking is $1,200

I cant build my own thats way i am buying it.

Nope, depending on the brand of the PSU and SSD. That rig needs a minimum of 8GB of RAM or it's pointless.

Why can't you build your own?

There are plenty of guides around (especially the Newegg videos) that can easily teach you how to assemble a PC.
